Product description


“Captivating. . . . Diverse. . . . While each essay is its own gem, together they form a remarkable dialogue about what it is to be human now, and what it will be in the future. . . . Fascinating.”
New Scientist
“Like reading a set of interesting blog posts, but on paper. And most of these folks don’t have blogs!”
Discover Magazine’s “Things Going On” blog
“Engrossing. . . . Offers a youthful spin on some of the most pressing scientific issues of today—and tomorrow. . . . Super smart and interesting.”
New York Observer’s “Very Short List”

“A fantastic cross-section of societal concerns, focusing largely on issues of ethics and the human mind. . . . This absorbing collection makes easy-to-read but thought-provoking material for even casual science buffs.”
Publishers Weekly
“Capaciously accessible, these writings project a curiosity to which followers of science news will gravitate.”
“If these authors are the future of science, then the science of the future will be one exciting ride! Find out what the best minds of the new generation are thinking before the Nobel Committee does. A fascinating chronicle of the big, new ideas that are keeping young scientists up at night.”
—Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness
“A preview of the ideas you're going to be reading about in ten years.”
—Steven Pinker, author of The Stuff of Thought
