About this book

'We are the primary drivers of change. We will directly and indirectly determine what lives, what dies, where and when. We are in a different phase of evolution; the future of life is now in our hands.'

Why are rates of conditions like autism, asthma, obesity and allergies exploding at an unprecedented pace? Why are humans living longer, getting smarter and having far fewer children? If Darwin were alive today, how would he explain this new world? Could our children eventually become a different species – or several?

In Evolving Ourselves, futurist Juan Enriquez and scientist Steve Gullans take us on a sweeping tour of how humans are changing the course of evolution – sometimes intentionally, sometimes not.
