Summary:Spanning a wide range of topics₇from string theory to education, from population growth to medicine, and even from global warming to the end of world₇What Are You Optimistic About? is an impressive array of what world-class minds (including Nobel Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, New York Times bestselling authors, and Harvard professors, among others) have weighed in to offer carefully considered optimistic visions of tomorrow. Their provocative ideas may rouse skepticism, but they might possibly change our perceptions of humanity's future.
