Synopsis This is a thorough and ultimately optimistic look at how humanity's unique qualities are driving it towards a better future. It's easy to be pessimistic about the future - everyday we hear about threats of global warming, terrorist plots, nuclear proliferation, and other frightening possibilities. It's also easy to look at the unprecedented toll of destruction caused by war in the 20th century alone, and conclude that our prospects for a better future stand on shaky ground. While not discounting the calamities of the past or the troubling realities on the horizon, Acceleration argues that humanity has a much brighter future - one that is driven by our unique ability to share information and knowledge between generations and across cultures. Grounded in a wealth of solid research, Acceleration offers hope that humanity is more than capable of solving even our most challenging problems.
