Certainly one of the most interesting science books I've read for a long time. (New Statesman)

A rollicking roller-coaster ride around the cutting edge of science with dozens of laugh-out-loud moments (Scotsman)

[A] grand tour of charismatic technologies and their prophets ... Stevenson bags an impressive list of interviewees (Financial Times)

Infectiously enthusiastic (Sunday Times)

His tools are curiosity, open-mindedness, clarity and reason. That makes his journey intriguing ... and ultimately exhilarating. (Chris Anderson, Curator TED.com)

One curious man's journey to find out 'what's next?'
