I felt this book was very well structured, starting with a list of problems and challenges that we as society face and then moving forward into looking at the possibilities of solutions.
The book provided enough detail for those of us that are interested, but do not have a specific background in the scientific or engineering disciplines required.
The book addressed the moral, ethical and religious arguments for and against some of the solutions.
For me, it made me think more about the current and future problems we face and has provided me with an insight into the opportunities we have to make a change to the status quo. I can now seek out more information on the subjects that really interested me( Although I have to say I found all of the topics covered extremely interesting)and I can watch out in the future to see just how many of these topics do actually develop and see it they do in fact make a difference.
Finally, I think this book is a great read for the youth of today or parents that worry about the opportunities for the future generations. What this book highlights, is the number of opportunities that do exist. I just wish that the leaders and polititions of the world would focus on these very real problems and work towards meaningful solutions and investment for the good of society and not for headline grabbing,selfish political/power gains.
If I had read a book like this as a teenager. I think I would have had a far better focus on what I wanted to do with my life from a future career point of view.
