Product description

Review

If you're bored with hackneyed debates, decades-old right-wing and left-wing clichés, you may enjoy the bold thinking, fresh ideas, lively prose, and evidence-based arguments in Utopia for Realists (Steven Pinker, author of 'The Language Instinct')

A wonderfully readable breath of fresh air, a window thrown open to a better future ... Bregman combines deep research with wit, challenging us to think anew about how we want to live and who we want to be. Required reading (Philipp Blomm, author of 'The Vertigo Years')

Brilliant, comprehensive, truly enlightening, and eminently readable (Zygmunt Bauman, one of the world's most eminent social theorists)

Superbly written, upbeat, insightful (Philippe van Parijs, Harvard University professor and co-founder of the Basic Income Earth Network)

If energy, enthusiasm and aphorism could make the world better, then Rutger Bregman's book would do it ... The writing is powerful and fluent ... A boisterously good read (Independent)
