Praise

Best business and leadership books of 2021, Amazon.com (Editor’s Picks)

“We live in an era of endless discovery and development, but are our best days already behind us? This is the question at the heart of Michael Bhaskar’s fascinating book, which asks whether, after decades and centuries of progress, society has now reached a point of stagnation. Bhaskar is a reassuringly positive and often witty guide to the opportunities that technology and medicine alike can still offer humanity, but he tempers his optimism with clear-sighted recognition that we could have, frustratingly, already reached our peak.”—The Guardian

“The author’s passion is undeniable…”
—Publishers Weekly
