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
