Named after his award-winning 2013 novel, a No. 1 bestseller in philosophy and a top 5 seller on Amazon, The Transhumanist Wager looks at how technology and science have the potential to advance the evolution of humankind.
Born in California and Ivy League-educated, Istvan is a self-described futurist who aims to use science, technology and reason to dramatically remake humanity. He’s a former journalist for the National Geographic Channel and frequent contributor to several major news outlets.
