Utopia For Realists - and how we can get there.

Visited the Wellcome Collection yesterday and came away with Utopia For Realists  (ON Ed)

Utopia for Realists is one of those rare books that takes you by surprise and challenges what you think you know. Rutger Bregman takes us on a journey through history, beyond the traditional left-right divides, as he introduces ideas whose time has come.

“If you’re bored with hackneyed debates, decades-old right-wing and left-wing clichés, you may enjoy the bold thinking, fresh ideas, lively prose, and evidence-based arguments in Utopia for Realists” –  Steven Pinker, author of ‘The Language Instinct’,

“In this surprising, accessible and often counterintuitive book Bregman explores some brilliant but simple ideas for making a better world” –  Brian Eno,

This is a Read Now book. Nothing dystopian about this one: a young, practical set of ideas for how the next generation can do better” –  Jeanette Winterson,

“You may not dream the same dreams as Bregman – but he invites you to take dreaming seriously. For that alone, this book is worth a read” –  Will Hutton, Observer

“The questions that Bregman poses must be addressed, and urgently” –  The New Scientist

“Truly enlightening and eminently readable” – Zygmunt Bauman
