TRANSFORMATIONS: How New Developments in Science, Technology, Business, and Society are Changing Your Life features short commentaries on new developments that are changing everyone’s life.

The book features chapters divided into these five sections: - High tech devices and trends - Mind and body discoveries - Amazing animals - Pop culture and society - Business and work The chapters in each section feature comments and suggestions on the present and future changes in our life. Some examples are: - some amazing new devices such as talking toothbrushes and forks - why lottery winners might do better if winners could give money away; - how blindly following a GPS can lead to problems; - the end of road rage with the rise of driverless cars; - chimp memory power and the decline of human intelligence; - the new cinematographers – animals with critter cams and video cameras; - the new science of bringing back extinct animals; - new technologies enabling people to see with their tongues - how mind control is becoming for real; - the possibility of living forever.
