From 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.
