In 2007, the Center for Automation in Nanobiotech (CAN) outlined the hardware and software platforms that would one day allow robots smaller than human cells to make medical diagnoses, conduct repairs, and even self-propagate. In the same year, the CBS network re-aired a program about the effects of propranolol on sufferers of extreme trauma. A simple pill, it had been discovered, could wipe out the memory of any traumatic event. At almost the same moment in humanity's broad history, mankind discovered the means for bringing about its utter downfall. And the ability to forget it ever happened. This is the second volume in the New York Times best-selling Wool series.
HUGH HOWEY is the author of the award-winning Molly Fyde saga and the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Wool series. The Wool Omnibus won Kindle Book Review's 2012 Indie Book of the Year Award and has been translated in forty countries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good prequel It's somewhat difficult to separate my feelings on this book from the first book of the series. Although I can appreciate why this would be the second book of the series, it was only after reading this book that I was truly interested. 'Wool' didn't pull me in the way this one did.
