An engaging and highly readable synthesis of history, science and social science that places itself on par with the greatest interdisciplinary writing of recent years. If you enjoyed Steven Pinker s The Better Angels of Our Nature, Niall Ferguson s Civilization, Fukuyama s The Origins of Political Order or Matt Ridley s The Rational Optimist, then this book is for you. --Ryan Smith, senior book editor at the Centre for Political Studie
The creative Society is a book that the reader cannot put down until you have reached the last page. It is simply exciting and fascinating. --Berlingske Tidende

Without a doubt one of the most important contributions to the public debate over the last decade. Read it and understand how we can create a prosperous future. --Brian Mikkelsen, chairman of the Danish political party The Conservatives
