About the Author
Marek Kohn is a writer and journalist who lives in Brighton, England, with his wife and son. He has written five previous books, the last three of which have explored aspects of evolutionary thinking and their implications for society. The most recent, A Reason for Everything: Natural Selection and the English Imagination, received exceptionally high praise. A.C Grayling called him "a wonderful writer"; Graham Farmelo called him "supremely intelligent"; and several reviewers, including Neal Ascherson, called the book "brilliant".

There are no panaceas and few conclusions. This book will primarily appeal to you if you want to learn about what is already known and would then like to pose and explore new questions.
The writing level is perfect for someone taking an introductory college course on the subject. As a result, those with a casual interest in the subject will rewarded without too much strain from their reading.
As an extension to the book's subject, I suggest that you also read Crowdsourcing: Why the Power of the Crowd Is Driving the Future of Business and Groundswell: Winning in a World Transformed by Social Technologies to get a sense of what can be done with more cooperation based on trust.
