A Postcard from the Future

Dr Ben Hamer

We’re experiencing change at the fastest rate in human history, but it’s also the slowest that we’ll experience for the rest of our lives. The reality is that the world is moving faster than we’re evolutionarily equipped to deal with, which can be pretty overwhelming, particularly off the back of a global pandemic. 

While it’s easy to say that the world sucks, it’s not as bad as we might think. A Postcard from the Future is a book that looks at where we’re heading as a human race over the next twenty years, from the future of healthcare and transport to the food we’ll eat and the homes we’ll live in, using signposts from today to paint a picture of tomorrow. It uncovers incredible breakthroughs, touches on the life-changing innovations that never made the front page, and asks the questions that need to be answered so that we can shape the world that we want to live in. It’s this knowledge that gives us a little more hope, a sprinkle of control, and a dash of optimism to embrace what’s ahead. And this new kind of thinking is more important than ever before.
