Reviews

If you are anxious about the future, and infuriated that we aren't doing enough about it, please read this book. It will ground you in an impressively wide span of real science. It offers something even more valuable than a new magic solution: you will understand why there isn't one -- Paul Collier, author of The Future of Capitalism
Combining a brutally realistic assessment of the present and a trust in humanity's ability to change its future, this book is a guiding light in our fight against climate change. Very informative and eye-opening in many ways -- Ha-Joon Chang, author of 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism
This accessible and witty book cuts to the chase of what we need to know in seven fundamental areas that govern our world: energy, food production, materials, globalisation, risks, the environment and its future -- Caroline Sanderson * The Bookseller, 'Editor's Choice' *
A compelling, fascinating, and most important, realistic portrait of the world and where it's going -- Steven Pinker, on Numbers Don't Lie
