About this title

Synopsis:

Combining the deft social analysis of Where Good Ideas Come From with the optimistic arguments of Everything Bad Is Good for You, Steven Johnson's Future Perfect argues that a new model of political change is on the rise, transforming everything from local governments to drug research to arts funding and education. Johnson paints a compelling portrait of this new political worldview - influenced by the success of the Internet but not dependent on high-tech solutions - that breaks with the traditional categories of liberal or conservative thinking. With his acclaimed flair for multidisciplinary storytelling and big idea books, Johnson explores this new vision of progress through a series of fascinating narratives: from the "miracle on the Hudson" to the invention of the Internet itself.

About the Author:

Steven Johnson is the author of seven bestsellers, including Where Good Ideas Come From, The Invention of Air, The Ghost Map, and Everything Bad Is Good for You, and is the editor of the anthology The Innovator’s Cookbook. He is the founder of a variety of influential websites—most recently, outside.in—and writes for Time, Wired, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. He lives in Marin County, California, with his wife and three sons.
