  1. Dystopi
    Christian Thomasson, 17 juli 2017

    Den behandlar olika öden och scenariet. Men på ett väldigt akademiskt och osammanhängande sätt. Känns oinbjudande och inbjuder inte till vidare läsning.

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.... [this book] is an essential provocation.

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.
