"This Will Change Everything offers seemingly radical but actually feasible ideas with the potential to change the world."--Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel

Editor John Brockman continues in the same vein as his popular compilations What Are You Optimistic About and What Have You Changed Your Mind About with This Will Change Everything. Brockman asks 150 intellectual superstars "what game-changing scientific ideas and developments do you expect to live to see?" Their fascinating responses are collected here, from bestselling author of Atonement Ian McEwan to Nobel Prize-winning physicist Frank Wilczek to electronic music pioneer Brian Eno to writer, actor, director, and activist Alan Alda.

Absolutely one of the best books I ever read. If everyone read this, & acted on the insights, the world would be better. Its strength lies in the fact that it forces you to look up much more information about what interests you. It is a collection of very short, easy to read essays on a huge range of topics by many familiar names & newcomers, ranging in age from 17 to 80's. Mostly scientists, plus a few entries by artists/musicians/etc. I'm reading at least a dozen more books based on my desire to know more about what's contained in this one. I hope my local libraries can obtain copies of the other books in the series (such as & "What Have You Changed Your Mind About") Highly recommended!!

I was horrified by what I read in the first few chapters. I couldn't read any further. Gills, anyone?
