Product description

Review

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. (New Scientist)

a thoughtful and lucid overview. (Stephen Cave, Financial Times)

This is an engaging tour through the hinterlands of techno-possibility. Highly recommended. (A. C. Love, CHOICE)
