Peter 2.0

The Human Cyborg




The extraordinary true story of the man who decided to live forever

Peter is told that he will lose everything he loves.

His ability to travel the world. His family. His friends. His husband. His entire life. All will be gone.

But Peter can't accept his fate, he vows that this will not be the end and instead he discovers a completely new beginning . . .

Peter has Motor Neurone Disease, a condition widely considered by doctors to be terminal. It will destroy his nerve cells and within a matter of years, he is told, it will take his life too.

But, face-to-face with death, he decides there must be another way and after three months of studying his condition, Peter, a brilliant scientist, navigates a new path, one that will enable him not just to survive, but to thrive.

This is the astonishing true story behind the primetime Channel 4 documentary, Dr. Peter Scott-Morgan who will become the first person to combine his very humanity with a computer. His discovery means that his terminal diagnosis is negotiable, something that will rewrite the future and change the world.

By embracing love and hope rather than fear and despair he will become Peter 2.0.

This audiobook includes an exclusive introduction recorded by the author, Peter Scott-Morgan, in the final few days he was able to use his biological voice. This unique audiobook also features narration from Peter 2.0, using cutting-edge technology known as voice puppetry. Through the course of the book there will be further moments of this pioneering voice puppetry, plus a recording of the very last moving words to pass Peter's lips
