A "NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW" NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR The National Book Award-winning author of "The Echo Maker "proves yet again that "no writer of our time dreams on a grander scale or more knowingly captures the zeitgeist." ("The Dallas Morning News"). What will happen to life when science identifies the genetic basis of happiness? Who will own the patent? Do we dare revise our own temperaments? Funny, fast, and magical, Generosity celebrates both science and the freed imagination. In his most exuberant book yet, Richard Powers asks us to consider the big questions facing humankind as we begin to rewrite our own existence.
