Description
"We are addicted to prediction, desperate for certainty about the future. But the complexity of modern life won't provide that: experts in forecasting are reluctant to look more than 400 days out. History doesn't repeat itself, and even genetics won't tell you everything you want to know. Tomorrow remains uncharted territory, but Heffernan demonstrates how we can forge ahead with agility. Drawing on a wide array of people and places, Uncharted traces long-term projects that shrewdly evolved over generations to meet the unpredictable challenges of every new age"--Dust jacket flap.
