"A team of neuroscientists uncover amazing new capabilities in the brain that may steer human evolution toward miraculous and deadly frontiers in this spectacular debut work of speculative science fiction -- Limitless meets James Rollins -- that combines spirituality and science in an inventive, mind-blowing fashion. For decades, scientists have speculated about the untapped potential of the human brain. Now, neuroscientist Chuck Brenton has made an astonishing breakthrough. He has discovered the key -- the crucial combination of practice and conditioning -- to access the incredible power dormant in ninety percent of our brains. Applying his methods to test subjects, he has stimulated abilities that elevate brain function to seemingly "godlike" levels. These extraordinary abilities can transform the world, replacing fear and suffering with tranquility and stability. But in an age of increasing militarization, corporate exploitation, and explosive technological discovery, a group of influential power brokers are determined to control Brenton's new superbeings for their own manipulative ends -- and their motives may be far from peaceful"--

Terrible book! Don't waste your time.

I can forgive a lot in a first book. Characters were flat and bland, dialog is stilted, the tech isn't new or visionary. But the supposed climax of the book has no narrative, no drama. It's like "they fight... and they win." Nothing. He may be a neurologist, but he has no imagination. He didn't even try.

The worst part, though, is the ending. It's like the publisher said "hurry up and finish it" and the author did - in one page. The main characters are being chased, then they find this really cool place with really cool people and everything will be great the end. Seriously. They go from "in trouble" to "safe" in half a page. And that's the end. My son wrote stories like that in 3rd grade.

The only positive thing I can say about this book is that it demonstrates that it must not be that hard to get published. Hope for aspiring writers that can actually write.

Yuck! An infinity-sized YUCK!
It would help tremendously if the author had ever read a science fiction book - - or any book, for that matter!
Priority News Flash to this author: A TED talk on a functioning brain/computer interface was given at least 4 years ago - - writing about future fiction which has already occurred ain't science fiction, dude!
One must surmise that HarperCollins has fired all their editors for that company to have published this crud - - not worth rating!
