At a time when our political system seems hopelessly gridlocked, Steven Johnson argues in Future Perfect that a fresh model of political change is on the rise, and he offers a new vision of progress for our networked age. The Time cover boy, popular TED talker, and bestselling author of Where Good Ideas Come From serves up brainy, multi-disciplinary theories that have made him one of today’s most bold and influential thinkers. Just ask his nearly 1.5 million Twitter followers.
"Johnson is a polymath, and it’s often exhilarating to follow his unpredictable trains of thought. To explain why some ideas upend the world, he draws upon many disciplines: chemistry, social history, geography, even ecosystem science."
