Michael Chorost became a cyborg when he had a computer surgically embedded in his skull to artificially restore his hearing. The author tour, included a high profile speaking engagement for the publication launch. This is a fascinating personal journey, with a wider importance than the personal. The serialisation is under negotiation. The combination of flesh and computer has long been a science fiction staple, but this witty, illuminating memoir outlines how that fantasy is becoming reality. Chorost went from deafness to hearing, from human to cyborg. One of the most pressing debates of our age is outlined in insightful, humorous prose that asks all the big questions. He confronts the role of human in a machine age: if the senses are programmable, can they be trusted; are cyborgs still human? This is a brilliant despatch from the technological frontier, a report of the possibilities of the technological age.. Chorost reveals how his body becomes more mechanical, he can plug himself directly into a CD player, his hearing is upgraded as new software is developed. Its issues will be widely debated in the media on publication
