Wow. After listening to this book for a third time in the last year, I decided I needed to write a review.
This book provides a well constructed, reasonable walk through time to give the reader some true perspective about our current condition relative to all those that have come before us.
At a time when media coverage is based around telling us what's wrong with us, our planet and our country, this book provides a practical antidote. Part historical narrative, part social anthropological study and part defense for science, technology and capitalism, this should be required reading for every high school student so they have something to balance their exposure to an almost completely reactionary media without any historical perspective.
It's true, there is a reason to believe mankind has a bright future! Who knew?
