Mindscan by Robert J. Sawyer

51DaLa-SxqL._SX332_BO1,204,203,200_The year is 2045, and beer company heir Jake Sullivan is really in trouble. He has been diagnosed with a rare and fatal neurological disease that could kill him at any moment. With that in mind, 40-year-old Jake decides to discard his potentially doomed biological body and replace it with a synthetic android body. The process, known as a Mindscan, is not quite consciousness transferring, but rather using quantum mechanics and advanced computer technology creates an instantaneous copy of an individual’s mind, transporting every thought, memory, and emotion into a duplicate android body. In short, the mental “essence” of the human being is digitally copied and superimposed into the complex artificial brain of an android. An android that is never sick, does not need to eat or sleep, and will never die. Sounds great, right?

Well, maybe not so much…
