New Scientist Here Be Dragons deserves to be read by all scientists and engineers, and especially by ambitious postdocs considering cutting-edge research. His sense of caution is profound, heartfelt and free of Luddite polemic: its a stimulating attempt to balance the pursuit of breakthroughs with old-fashioned humility....

Stephen Cave, Financial Times a thoughtful and lucid overview.
A. C. Love, CHOICE This is an engaging tour through the hinterlands of techno-possibility. Highly recommended.
