This is a great idea! For the moment I believe Damien Broderick's book "The Spike" could be considered fairly close to this ideal. I have not yet read it, but get the impression based on what others have told me.
Ultimately, I think this is a book to be written by Max More. He has already written so many articles which could be fleshed out to help create a book. Max has the knowledge and background to do this right.
Of course, I could see room for collaboration. Such people as Nick Bostrom, Natasha Vita-More, Anders Sandburg, Eliezer Yudkowsky, etc. could make very valuable contributions.
I look forward to seeing this happen.
