Twenty essential books about the next step in human evolution

Annalee Newitz at io9 came up with a list of 20 essential books about the next step in human evolution.

One novel on the list:
Amped, by Daniel Wilson

In his SF novel Amped, Wilson asks many of the same questions that [bioethics professor James] Hughes asks in his scholarly work in Citizen Cyborg. Wilson imagines a future where people who have been enhanced with brain implants have an identifying mark so that people know when they are dealing with somebody who has been "amped." Again, humans have taken charge of their evolution — and that process has become deeply political.
