9780141974910: Future Perfect: The Case For Progress In A Networked Age

From the international bestselling author Steven Johnson, Future Perfect is the story of how progress is still possible and our future really is bright

What links a heroic pilot, eighteenth-century coffee houses, the French railway system and the invention of the Internet? Steven Johnson, with his renowned flair for discovering new ideas and hidden connections, shows that the answer lies in networked thinking. Johnson argues that collaborative networks of 'peer progressives' hold the key to an incredible range of human achievements, and can transform everything from local government to drug research to arts funding and education. Looking beyond traditional politics, Future Perfect shows that a new model of change is on the rise.

'Read Future Perfect ... Mr Johnson's book will give you lots of material to brighten the outlook of your gloomy friends ... it envisions a new political movement' Wall Street Journal

'An informative, tech-savvy and provocative vision of a new and more democratic public philosophy. A breath of fresh air a breath of fresh air in an age of gridlock, cynicism and disillusionment' San Francisco Chronicle

'A buoyant and hopeful book ... Future Perfect reminds us we already have the treatment. We just need to use it' Boston Globe

'An articulate manifesto' Clive Cookson, Financial Times

Steven Johnson is the US bestselling author of Where Good Ideas Come From, The Invention of Air, The Ghost Map, and Everything Bad Is Good for You, and is the editor of the anthology The Innovator's Cookbook. He is the founder of a variety of influential websites - most recently, outside.in - and writes for Time, Wired, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. He lives in Marin County, California, with his wife and three sons.
