One of the freakiest books

I believe that Man after Man: An Anthropology of the Future (1990) by Dougal Dixon should be among the top ten freaky books of all time. My copy is well thumbed through but I haven’t read the entire book through: it’s just too unsettling what might happen with genetic engineering. Check it out of the library and see if you don’t agree.
Dixon studied Geology and Palaeogeography but is best known as an incredibly productive writer (over 100 books) of science (especially Dinosaur books) and speculative science for children and adults. Another of his titles you might find as fascinating (and perhaps less freaky) is After Man: a Zoology of the Future (1981).
