Both enlightening and hilarious, this travelogue by the always-entertaining J. Maarten Troost (The Sex Lives of Cannibals, PAC146) explores nothing less than the future of mankind. Beginning with the generally bleak outlook of contemporary culture, Troost travels to forward-looking places in South Korea, Denmark, Japan and South Africa to catch a glimpse of what lies beyond the horizon. His ambitious narrative discusses the future of food, intelligence, aging, conservation and more.
