Yes, there were some very interesting "facts" but the value was mitigated by a healthy dose of progressive politics injected into the dialog from time to time.

I enjoy the book except for the parts when he's being a futurist and he's trying to predict the future. Other than that, he has a lot to say and I enjoyed the book.
Nothing but a waste of time and money. If the authors would have been able to stick to the facts and the truth I could have enjoyed it, but they had to interject their erroneous opinions and lie about the right. Too bad.
In regards to the future of humanity, this world is full of negative thinkers, complainers, and pessimists. Abundance checks all those who suffer from "stinkin thinkin," as Zig Zigglar would say. I say read this book, stop with the mini fiddle playing accompanying your crying tune, and go be a part of the solution.
No because it is dense in it's mind-blowingness and one needs to stop and let the knowledge percolate to appreciate the full flavor of what the author's are cooking.
It's a brief rehash of Pinker's Better Angels with a future looking perspective. It even has the same narrator.
