What connects the "miracle on the Hudson" to the planning of the French railway system,
or the mysterious outbreak of strange smells in downtown Manhattan to the invention of the
Internet? With his characteristic flair for multidisciplinary storytelling, Steven Johnson
shows in Future Perfect that what lies behind these and many other fascinating
human stories is the concept of networked thinking.
Exploring a new vision of
progress, Johnson argues that networked thinking holds the key to an incredible range of
human achievements, and can transform everything from local government to drug research to
arts funding and education. Future Perfect paints a compelling portrait of a new
model of political change that is already on the rise, and shows that despite Western
political systems hopelessly gridlocked by old ideas, change for the better can happen,
and that new solutions are on the horizon.
