Easily one of the ugliest cover designs but a good read none the less. Like many recent titles Abundance is very optimistic about the future that is driven by 4 forces of abundance: 3 billon new educated people, exponential technology, diy innovation, and philantropy. All this is argument-ed very convincingly, all is well researched and therefor Abundance is a message of hope.
Getting ready to blog a review on this

Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think by Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler. So good! Really made me re-think so many of my opinions on technology and scarcity. I highly recommend this one!
This is a refreshing anecdote to the ever-popular dystopian future tomes. Kotlers keen writing combined with Diamandis wealth of experience provide insight into things to come. Well-researched, well-written and thoroughly engaging page-after-page. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in their future. * nice

'a multiverse of exploration: the future of science 2021' [map] - institute for the future, 2011
Invisibility cloaks. The search for extraterrestrial intelligence. A Facebook for genes. These were just a few of the startling topics IFTF explored at our recent Technology Horizons Program conference on the "Future of Science." More than a dozen scientists from UC Berkeley, Stanford, UC Santa Cruz, Scripps Research Institute, SETI, and private industry shared their edgiest research driving transformations in science. MythBusters' Adam Savage weighed in on the future of science education. All of their presentations were signals supporting IFTF's new "Future of Science" forecast, laid out in a new map titled "A Multiverse of Exploration: The Future of Science 2021." The map focuses on six big stories of science that will play out over the next decade: Decrypting the Brain, Hacking Space, Massively Multiplayer Data, Sea the Future, Strange Matter, and Engineered Evolution. Those stories are emerging from a new ecology of science shifting toward openness, collaboration, reuse, and increased citizen engagement in scientific research.

For centuries, we as a society have operated according to a very unflattering view of human nature: that, humans are universally and inherently selfish creatures. As a result, our most deeply entrenched social structures – our top-down business models, our punitive legal systems, our market-based approaches to everything from education reform to environmental regulation - have been built on the premise that humans are driven only by self interest, programmed to respond....

The Penguin and the Leviathan: How Cooperation Triumphs over Self-Interest: Yochai Benkler: 9780385525763: Amazon.com: Books
Great book on why collaboration, cooperation and altruism works. What I liked most was the criticism put against the classical economics notion of the Invisible Hand and the assumed 'selfish' interests as an organisational, economical and regulatory paradigm. Benkler argues through many research studies that collaboration and the motivation to contribute to more than oneself actually makes sense.
