The incredible book behind the primetime Channel 4 documentary, Peter: The Human Cyborg.
Peter, a brilliant scientist, is told that he will lose everything he loves.
His husband. His family. His friends. His ability to travel the world. All will be gone.
But Peter will not give up. He vows that this will not be the end and instead seeks a completely new beginning....
Peter has motor neurone disease, a condition universally considered by doctors to be terminal. It will destroy his nerve cells, and he is told that within an average of two years, it will take his life, too.
But, face to face with death, he decides there is another way. Using his background in science and technology, he navigates a new path, one that will enable him not just to survive but to thrive.
This is the astonishing true story behind the prime-time Channel 4 documentary about Peter Scott-Morgan, the first person to combine his very humanity with artificial intelligence and robotics to become a full cyborg. His discovery means that his terminal diagnosis is negotiable, something that will rewrite the future. And change the world.
By embracing love, life and hope rather than fear, tragedy and despair, he will become Peter 2.0.
This audiobook includes an exclusive introduction recorded by the author, Peter Scott-Morgan, in the final few days he was able to use his biological voice. This unique audiobook also features narration from Peter 2.0, using cutting-edge technology known as voice puppetry. Through the course of the book there will be further moments of this pioneering voice puppetry, plus a recording of the very last moving words to pass Peter's lips.
"What's striking is Peter's constant optimism, bravery and his ability to find radical answers to problems that have confounded Britain's brightest minds." (The Daily Telegraph)
"A remarkable story [...] you're left desperate to take nothing for granted." (Radio Times)

Amazing book which must be read
This book is so very touching and inspirational. Peter Scott-Morgan is a very intelligent man and thanks to people like him with his knowledge and expertise Artificial Intelliegence will continually advance and benefit us human beings not just now but in the future. His husband Francis should also be praised for the love and support he gives Peter. I hope they have a very long and happy life together.
