Mind at the End of Its Tether (1945) was H. G. Wells' last book. He was 79 when he wrote it. It is only 34 pages long. In it, Wells considers the idea of humanity being soon replaced by some other, more advanced, species of being. [1] He bases this thought on his long interest in the paleontological record. At the time of writing Wells had not yet heard of the atomic bomb.
