The Wisdom of Crowds
By James Surowiecki
It seems illogical that a group with a mix of geniuses, idiots and everything in between would be better at making decisions than a small group of experts, but under the right conditions it is just so.
That is why we as humanity are so successful.
James Surowiecki describes the tremendous power of our collective intelligence in The Wisdom of Crowds.
Lifespan: Why We Age — and Why We Don't Have To
By David Sinclair
That we age is as natural a part of life as death. Or, can aging slow down, and even stop? Can we ceath death?
David Sinclair is professor of genetics in the relatively new but rapidly expanding field of longevity and anti-aging research.
In Lifespan he shows where research stands today, and dares to say what he thinks many of his colleagues believe, but dare not say: Aging is not natural, but something we can stop.
One planet is enough: tackling climate change and environmental threats through technology
By Rune Westergård
Mankind cannot go backwards to solve climate change. We must use the most natural tool we have to stop the climate problem: Technology.
Technology has always been a part of humanity. In the beginning, innovation went very slowly, now it is much faster. We have always used technology to overcome problems and obstacles. The same recipe will be the solution to the environmental problems.
The Future Is Faster Than You Think: How Converging Technologies Are Transforming Business, Industries, and Our Lives
By Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler
This is their third book together. Their two previous books are at least as good, Abundance and Bold.
Now they are looking ahead and looking at how different technologies meet and how at these intersections expected and unexpected events occur. Things that change communities and industries.
The Space Barons: Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and the Quest to Colonize the Cosmos
By Christian Davenport
Rocket Billionaires: Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and the New Space Race
By Tim Fernholz
Two books that are almost the same, both about the new space race. Now not between superpowers, but between billionaires.
It is Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos that the stories revolve around. Two men with similar ambitions, but very different approaches.
Read one or both books, whichever one you choose doesn't matter, both are good.
