"Once we decided which one of me would first read How to Defeat Your Own Clone, the rest was a breeze. Kudos to Kyle, Kyle, Terry and Terry for a terrific blend of science and wackiness. I can't wait to use this against me."-David P. Murphy, author of Zombies for Zombies: Advice and Etiquette for the Living Dead "God willing, I will never have to come face to face with a genetic double of myself, but I take great comfort in knowing that in this book I have the tools necessary to triumph over it." -Joe Garden, Co-Author of The New Vampire's Handbook and Features Editor of The Onion "A fun ride through the myths and facts of the biotech revolution, this book addresses the truly important questions, like how we can turn ourselves into superstrong, ageless, disease-resistant megageniuses. The best part is that everything you'll read here, including how to fight a clone who shares your thoughts, is based on real scientific research."-- Annalee Newitz, editor-in-chief of io9.com "The US Supreme Court may take decades before it concedes that the Constitutional right to reproductive freedom includes some right of cloning. Kurpinski and Johnson are far ahead. They shine a rational and entertaining light on the promise of cloning and its likely hazards." -Bart Kosko, Author of Fuzzy Thinking and Heaven in a Chip "It's a hoot!" -Robert Zubrin, author of How to Live on Mars.
