I enjoyed this book a great deal. It's still quite relevant, but occasionally shows its twelve-year-old age. Lots of activity in the climate sector in the last few years, and you'll need to read more broadly to get coverage of that.

Stewart Brand is a captivating writer and a genuine polymath, though, so this is an outstanding overview both of the seriousness of the coming climate crisis, and of the practical work that we can do that will address it.

Strongly recommended.

Another 'gee whiz' pop account of the wonders and inevitable progress of American ingenuity and big business. The holography references looked over-egged then, and particularly naive now. It's debatable whether any substantive elements of the future came from the Media Lab.

Superficially-assessed convictions; I don't recognise any discipline in Brand's reasoning.

Great book on the relationship between people, places and things (in this case: buildings). The anthropological side is analyzed just like the architectural one and this is what makes this book a great book. And by the way, Brand's observations are always smart, deep and witty. The set of photographs which fills the book is more than a complement, is substantial to the comprehension of the concepts. Great read.
