Praise

"Stevenson describes our future’s possibilities with a journalist’s eye for detail, a teacher’s knack for translating complexities, and a comic’s wry commentary." — Christian Science Monitor

"A series of sharp and fascinating interviews with technological innovators and scientific visionaries." — Wall Street Journal

"Stevenson surveys a huge number of research fields – synthetic biology, nanotech, robotics and alternative energy to name just a few – in labs on nearly every continent, and weaves the most promising aspects of each into one grand vision. … The book is a refreshing reminder that the future will always belong to the optimists." — The New Scientist

"Stevenson does a great job of delivering all the facts with a sense of wonder and curiosity… I highly recommend this book." — Wired‘s Geek Dad

"From longevity science to robotics to cancer research, Stevenson explores the most cutting-edge ideas in science and technology from around the world, the important ethical and philosophical questions they raise, and, perhaps most importantly, the incredible potential for innovation through the cross-pollination of these different ideas and disciplines." — The Atlantic
