Best-selling author Matt Ridley publishes “The Evolution of Everything: How New Ideas Emerge”

Matt Ridley, the New York Times best-selling author of “The Rational Optimist”, has returned with a fascinating argument for evolution that aims to dispel a “dangerous, widespread myth: that we can command and control our world.”

His new book, “The Evolution of Everything: How New Ideas Emerge” (HarperCollins, 2015) argues that humanity’s most important achievements develop from the bottom up, and counters conventional assumptions that major scientific and social imperatives are dictated by top-down authorities.

"The Evolution of Everything" is about bottom-up order and its enemy, the top-down twitch—the endless fascination human beings have for design rather than evolution, for direction rather than emergence.  As compelling as it is controversial, authoritative as it is ambitious, Ridley’s stunning perspective will revolutionise the way we think about our world and how it works.

“What a superb writer he is, and he seems to get better and better.”
– Richard Dawkins, author of “The Selfish Gene”

“An ingenious study…thought-provoking…difficult to put down.”
Kirkus Reviews

Drawing on evidence from science, economics, history, politics and philosophy, Matt makes the case for evolution, rather than design, as the force that has shaped much of the culture, our technology and our minds, and that even now is shaping our future.

As compelling as it is controversial, and authoritative as it is ambitious, “The Evolution of Everything” will revolutionise the way you think about the world and how it works. Click here for more information.
