It's, Like, Better All the Time!
Abundance by Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler is available today.
A book that explains how and why the world is getting better is right up my alley, anyhow, but I really like the timing because I think this news make a nice counterpoint to some of our recent topics, including asking whether robots are about to steal our jobs. Also, I just last week launched a new blog that is thematically related to this book. (That'; this blog, btw.)
Diamandis' and Kotke's arguments will be happily accepted by a few and hotly debated by almost everyone else. Most of our political discourse is based on the idea that the world is getting worse and doom is imminent. Plus that's the basic message that media makes its money on.
