Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book contains a plan - probably the only plan - to save the world. Naam is unwilling to minimize the challenges that face us, but equally unwilling to sermonize or catastrophize. The Infinite Resource is an intelligent and responsible analysis, presented in lively prose; it should be required reading for all global thinkers and leaders."
- Steven Pinker, author of The Better Angels of Our Nature.

"Brilliant. Naam shows that innovation is the only force equal to the global challenges that face us, and that we can prosper if we harness it."
- Ray Kurzweil, author of The Singularity is Near


"Most books about the future are written by blinkered Pollyannas or hand-wringing Cassandras. Ramez Naam-Egypt-born, Illinois-raised, a major contributor to the computer revolution-is neither. Having thought about science, technology and the environment for decades, he has become that rarest of creatures: a clear-eyed optimist. Concise, informed and passionately argued, The Infinite Resource both acknowledges the very real dangers that lie ahead for the human enterprise and the equally real possibility that we might not only survive but thrive."
Charles Mann, NYT best selling author of 1491


"An amazing book. Throughout history, the most important source of new wealth has been new ideas. Naam shows how we can tap into and steer that force to overcome our current problems and help create a world of Abundance."
-  Peter H. Diamandis, Chairman of the X PRIZE and Singularity University, Author of the NYT Best Seller Abundance - The Future is Better Than You Think


"A refreshingly thorough roadmap of solutions to our energy and climate crisis."
- UTNE Reader
