Ed HudginsESkeptic, the email newsletter of the Skeptic Society, today featured a double book review by The Atlas Society’s Edward Hudgins . Under the title “It’s Getting Better All the Time,” Hudgins looks at Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think, by Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler and Merchants of Despair: Radical Environmentalists, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists, and the Fatal Cult of Antihumanism, by Robert Zubrin.

What does the future hold for humanity? An optimistic answer is outlined in these two volumes. Abundance takes a purely positive perspective while Merchants comes to its optimism by means of debunking the pessimists. Read why Hudgins thinks these two excellent books offer us components for a new Enlightenment synthesis that can usher in profound cultural changes well beyond the particulars in the pages of these books.
