Is the future better than we think? Let's find out together in "Abundance"­

The title speaks volumes. This bold, contrarian view, backed up by exhaustive research, introduces our near-term future, where exponentially growing technologies and three other powerful forces are conspiring to better the lives of billions. An antidote to pessimism by tech entrepreneur turned philanthropist, Peter H. Diamandis and award-winning science writer Steven Kotler.

It will bring some readers up short to contemplate the abundance that Diamandis and Kotler project in the face of the stark reality that there may well be 10 billion humans on the planet by the year 2050, but that doesn’t daunt the authors much, given the human talent for engineering our way out of trouble

A great book for those interested in coming technology and its affect on civilization.

 

Last minute note:  We will meet in the Family Center instead of the Commons at Laura's Library for this meetup.
