5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book. A real page-turner., May 9, 2014

This review is from: Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper: How Innovation Keeps Proving the Catastrophists Wrong (Hardcover)
To start, this book is very practical and easy to read. Bryce addresses some of the world's most daunting issues and clearly discusses what is being done to address these challenges. The book gives a great overview of some of the most impactful innovations that have happened over the past few centuries and highlights some innovations/technologies that have enormous potential going forward. Bryce has a natural talent at explaining complex subjects in a way that is easy for the reader to understand. Power density is extremely important and this book clearly explains why. Regarding technological breakthroughs, I am blown away by how far we have come in a short amount of time. Throughout the book, Bryce entertainingly shows many different ways that humans are doing more with less.
I have read too many books that pinpoint all of the problems the world faces, but offer unrealistic solutions. This is not one of those books. All arguments made by Bryce are supported by facts and data. I recommend this book to anyone interested in innovation, technology, human ingenuity, or energy policy. Because the drive for smaller, faster, lighter, denser, and cheaper is applicable to nearly every industry today, this book applies to all businesses looking to be successful/competitive in the future.
