• "Tad Homer-Dixon is a rare kind of public intellectual, who combines real expertise with a commitment to communicate to the wisest possible readership. In The Ingenuity Gap he wants us all to wake up to the fearful possibility that our blithe trust in science and technology may be misplaced. Human ingenuity may not be capable of copying with tow emerging crises of this century and the next: population growth and environmental despoliation. Read Homer-Dixon's wake-up call and you will see the future very differently"
