5.0 out of 5 stars How to expand your thinking
This is an extraordinary collection of essays and presentations form a diverse bunch of academics, which has all the opportunities to be a lot of waffle. However, it manages to be both rigorous and exciting at the same time. many of the contributors are at the front of their fields, and you can "hear" them talk about subjects and concepts that are still a long way...

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, given Brockman's other work
This is all rambling gossip - full of anecdotes - and hardly anything new.

Very disappointing, given Brockman's other collections such as What are you optimistic about, This will make you smarter, etc

This is an extraordinary collection of essays and presentations form a diverse bunch of academics, which has all the opportunities to be a lot of waffle. However, it manages to be both rigorous and exciting at the same time. many of the contributors are at the front of their fields, and you can "hear" them talk about subjects and concepts that are still a long way from mainstream thinking, but once considered, seem self evident.

Its not a quick read; I tend to only be able to read a chapter at a time as the concepts are complex, but well worth the effort.

I have read other books in this series, enjoyed them all, very thought provoking, small self contained sections so I can dip in and out freely, and still take something away from the experience,
