The Future Starts Here: An Optimistic Guide to What Comes Next
John Higgs is back with another surprising, eclectic book, this time looking to the future to make sense of who we are and where we're going
When we look into the future, we imagine economic collapse, environmental disaster and the zombie apocalypse. But what if we are wrong? John Higgs takes us on a journey past the technological hype and headlines to discover why we shouldn't trust the predictions of science fiction, why nature is not as helpless as we assume and why purpose can never be automated. In the process, we will come to a better understanding of what lies ahead and how, despite everything we can build a better future.
