Matt Ridley is a best-selling author, scientist and columnist. A brilliant speaker on innovation and global trends, his forthcoming book, “The Evolution of Everything: How New Ideas Emerge” (HarperCollins, September 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.

Matt is an expert speaker on how new ideas emerge. Click here to watch his TED talk on the subject, which now has over two million views.
