The book is an antidote to pessimism by tech entrepreneur turned philanthropist, Peter H. Diamandis and award- winning science writer Steven Kotler. The authors document how four forces – exponential technologies, the DIY innovator, the Technophilanthropist, and the Rising Billion – are conspiring to solve our biggest problems. Abundance establishes hard targets for change and lays out a strategic roadmap for governments, industry and entrepreneurs, giving us plenty of reason for optimism. Abundance redirects the conversation, spotlighting scientific innovators working to improve people’s lives around the world. The result is more than a portrait of brilliant minds - it’s a reminder of the infinite possibilities for doing good when we tap into our own empathy and wisdom.
