Ray Kurzweil, legendary inventor and author of New York Times bestsellers The Singularity is Near and How to Create a Mind, has created inventions and ideas that have changed human civilization. PBS called him ''One of the revolutionaries who made America,'' and Inc. magazine name him ''Edison's rightful heir.''

Now Kurzweil has created a novel and an unforgettable character-Danielle-to help convey some of his most important ideas. Danielle: Chronicles of a Super-heroine, tells the story of a precocious young girl who uses her intelligence and accelerating technology to solve humanity's grandest challenges. Now if only we can find more courageous visionaries like Danielle.

Written as an alternative history, Danielle's journey as a driven young girl brings her face to face with many important figures from recent history and our modern world. Told through the eyes of Danielle's equally remarkable sister Claire, a girl adopted from Haiti after surviving the earthquake, this story shows all readers a hopeful vision of humanity's future-and how to achieve it.

The novel features 24 graphic novel-style illustrations, one for each year of Danielle's life, by New Yorker cartoonist and Ray's daughter, Amy Kurzweil (author of Flying Couch: A Graphic Memoir, a New York Times Editor's Pick and Best of 2016).

Accompanying the novel are two nonfiction companion works by the author, which is a literary first. Included in this volume is How You Can Be A Danielle, a call to action, providing pragmatic, thought-provoking and clear guidance on how readers can be inspired to emulate Danielle and help bring about a better world.

A separate volume, A Chronicle of Ideas: A Guide for Super-heroines (and Superheroes) provides Kurzweil's-and Danielle's-unique spin on 282 concepts presented in the novel.
