On the way to a New York stock market listing, the company’s founders join forces with a sceptical investor, a venture capital fund impressed by their early success, and an ethics committee buckling under its godlike responsibility.

Advance Praise

“Witty, sharp, erudite and entertaining; but most of all it’s life-affirming. It tells you to be here now. It’s a call to action, a prayer, and a comfort. I loved it.” - Imogen Edwards-Jones, author of the Babylon series, and award-winning journalist, broadcaster, novelist and screenwriter. 

“The Consciousness Company is a fascinating and deeply thoughtful look at what happens when tech takes on consciousness, the stuff of life itself. It's a wildly imaginative and mind-expanding read – a timely, prescient novel of big ideas about what makes us human.” - Eli Lee, Author of A Strange and Brilliant Light, Winner of the Writers' Guild Best First Novel Award.

“A compelling and thought-provoking exploration of consciousness, ethics, technology and humanity. M. N. Rosen’s new book is a must-read for anyone interested in what the future may hold.” - Rt Hon Chris Philp MP, former UK Technology Minister.
