Abstract:

As each new Michael Crichton book grazes the cutting edge of scientific technology, this innovative guide serves to expose the plausibility behind the inventions of Crichton's thrilling fiction. This fascinating analysis puts Crichton's novels to the test, examining shocking developments--regarding dinosaur cloning, global warming, nanotechnology, time travel, animal behavior, and human genetics--and revealing the validity of the science behind them (or lack thereof). Exposing the truth behind the miracles and nightmares Crichton describes in his work, this tell-all resource dissects the science at the heart of each of his bestselling novels.
