Lee has written about Transhumanism in his book Google It: Total Information Awareness (Springer Science+Business Media, 2016). The book was lauded by Dr. Laura Wilhelm for The Hollywood Times that "Newton Lee's thorough and thoughtful analysis should please pacifists in search of lasting solutions to the planet's biggest problems."
