THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER FROM THE VIRAL SENSATION TAKING ON THE BILLIONAIRES

'Listen out for Rutger Bregman. He has a big future shaping the future' Observer

'A more politically radical Malcolm Gladwell' New York Times

'The Dutch wunderkind of new ideas' Guardian

In Utopia for Realists, Rutger Bregman shows that we can construct a society with visionary ideas that are, in fact, wholly implementable. Every milestone of civilisation - from the end of slavery to the beginning of democracy - was once considered a utopian fantasy. New utopian ideas such as universal basic income and a fifteen-hour work week can become reality in our lifetime.

From a Canadian city that once completely eradicated poverty, to Richard Nixon's near implementation of a basic income for millions of Americans, Bregman takes us on a journey through history, beyond the traditional left-right divides, as he introduces ideas whose time has come.

Review:

In this surprising, accessible and often counterintuitive book Bregman explores some brilliant but simple ideas for making a better world (Brian Eno)

This is a Read Now book. Nothing dystopian about this one: a practical set of ideas for how the next generation can do better (Jeanette Winterson)

If you're bored with hackneyed debates, decades-old right-wing and left-wing clichés, you may enjoy the bold thinking, fresh ideas, lively prose, and evidence-based arguments in Utopia for Realists (Steven Pinker, author of 'The Language Instinct')

This is a book stuffed full of ideas, presented persuasively and pithily, but it is also just a part of the new zeitgeist - which is why it is one for today's dreamers and tomorrow's realists (Danny Dorling Times Higher Educational Supplement)

Rutger Bregman is the most exciting radical thinker of my generation. If you read him and you aren't thrilled, mentally expanded, and infused with hope, call for the undertaker - I suspect you've died. Oh - and did I mention he is a beautiful writer too? (Johann Hari, Sunday Times bestselling-author of 'Lost Connections')

Listen out for Rutger Bregman. He has a big future shaping the future (Andrew Anthony Observer)

The Dutch wunderkind of new ideas (Guardian)

An excellent read and full of well-told stories and details I didn't know (Tim Harford, author of The Undercover Economist)

If you're fed up with moaning, you owe it to yourself to read this book (Evening Standard)

If energy, enthusiasm and aphorism could make the world better, then Rutger Bregman's book would do it ... The writing is powerful and fluent ... A boisterously good read (Independent)
