About this product
- DescriptionLook out for Johnson s new book, Wonderland, w on sale. Combining the deft social analysis ofWhere Good Ideas Come Fromwith the optimistic arguments ofEverything Bad Is Good for You, New York Times bestselling author and one of the most inspiring visionaries of contemporary culture, Steven Johnson, maps the ways a connected world will be both different and better. Steven Johnson proposes that a new model of political change is on the rise transforming everything from local government to classrooms to health care. It s a compelling new political worldview that breaks with traditional categories of liberal or conservative thinking. Johnson explores this invative vision through a series of fascinating narratives: from the Miracle on the Hudson to the planning of the French railway system; from the battle against malnutrition in Vietnam to a mysterious outbreak of strange smells in downtown Manhattan; from underground music video artists to the invention of the Internet itself. At a time when the conventional wisdom holds that the political system is hopelessly gridlocked with old ideas, Future Perfectmakes the timely and uplifting case that progress is still possible.
