A Must of a Book Review

At last, a book worth a look for a shaft of optimism about the future of the human species by Matt Ridley. Read the review by Jon Henley (slightly hostile, but then The Guardian newspaper over-doses on left-of-centre pessimism, which is all the fault of capitalism, etc.,) HERE:

Matt Ridley: 'We can overcome disease, poverty and climate change'

The author of The Rational Optimist on why life on earth is bound to get better

The Rational Optimist: How Prosperity Evolves, by Matt Ridley, 448pp, Fourth Estate

[Copyright laws persuade me not to reproduce the review; the left-of-centre Guardian notoriously protects property rights in its columns. I have no wish to test the depths of their alleged liberal conscience]
