Nearly half of them are women, and all of them are great communicators: their passion and excitement makes this collection a wonderfully invigorating read. In this fascinating collection of writings that introduce the very latest theories and discoveries in science, editor Max Brockman presents the work of some of today’s brightest and most innovative young researchers.

It has a wealth of new and exciting ideas, and will help shake up our notions regarding the age, sex, color, and topic clichés of the current public perception of science.” —Steven Pinker, author of The Stuff of Thought About the Author Max Brockman is the vice president of Brockman, Inc. a literary agency, and the editor of What's Next?
