“Blind optimism is the last thing the world needs—it’s a recipe for disappointment. But what about ptimism based on careful reasoning? …That’s what’s on offer here. Stevenson’s tools are curiousity, open-mindedness, clarity, and reason. That makes his journey intriguing and ultimately exhilarating.”

- Chris Anderson, TED Curator

 

When unexpectedly confronted with his own mortality, Mark Stevenson – a writer, truly deep thinker, and stand-up comedian – began to ponder what the future holds for our species. Although the future is an unknown and increasingly alarming territory, there is no guidebook. The author traveled the globe pursuing
answers, and found many that are surprisingly reassuring.
