I had to read this book for work and wasn't expecting to enjoy it but I really really did It wasn't hysterical like some books on the future can be just calm insightful and optimisticRather than offering a map for the future as the title implies Heffernan actually discusses uncertainty and how that coupled with willingness to experiment and take risks will give humanity the best chance of survival It is risk aversion our 'addiction to prediction' and our need for certainty that makes human beings vulnerable as the future unfolds On this theme Heffernan is particularly critical of the overuse of technology and automation which large corporations use to make our behaviour predictable to them I particularly enjoyed this part of the book even if it was rather unnervingThe discussion of death was also very good profound and moving and worth the price of the book all on its ownHighly recommended
