bookshelves: popular-science
Recommended for: people interested in future technology
Read in January, 2006

A surprisingly good set of essays on science and technology in the next 50 years. Contains some massive heavyweights such as Lee Smolin, Ian Stewart, Richard Dawkins, Steven Strogatz, Paul Davies and Stuart Kauffman all of whom are great popular science authors. A great mix of cosmology, physics, biology and psychology. In the second half of the book there are some highly enjoyable futurist ones in the computer science and psychology direction. Pretty much every essay in there is of a high standardard, so 25 of them provide plenty of food for thought and entertainment. For anyone who likes speculating about technology and science.
