  • Our species is entering a new era Millions of years ago, we created tools to change our environment Caves became huts, fires became ovens, and clubs became swords Collectively these tools became technology, and the pace of innovation accelerated Now we re applying the latest advancements to our own biology, and technology is becoming part of the process But is that aOur species is entering a new era Millions of years ago, we created tools to change our environment Caves became huts, fires became ovens, and clubs became swords Collectively these tools became technology, and the pace of innovation accelerated Now we re applying the latest advancements to our own biology, and technology is becoming part of the process But is that a good thing Not if media scare pieces about government spying, limitless automation, and electronic addictions are to be believed But veteran journalist and best selling author Peter Nowak looks at what it means to be human from the relationships we form and the beliefs we hold to the jobs we do and the objects we create and measures the impact that those innovations have had and will have in the future He shows not only how advancements in robotics, nanotechnology, neurology, and genetics are propelling us into a new epoch, but how they re improving us as a species Nowak has compiled the data and travelled the world to speak to experts Focusing on the effects of technology rather than just its comparatively minor side effects, he finds a world that is rapidly equalizing, globalizing, and co operating.

    1. Peter Nowak is an award winning journalist and best selling author based in Toronto He has been writing about technology and pop culture since 1997 for publications including the Boston Globe, Sydney Morning Herald, The Globe and Mail and New Scientist magazine His first book, Sex, Bombs and Burgers, was published in six countries His syndicated blog can be found at Alphabeatic.

    2. Humans 3.0 will definitely not strike you as a very original and captivating work No grand ideas, no sophisticated arguments, nothing that you haven t seen before if you have been paying attention to life, in general, for the past couple of years I liked it, though And this is mostly due to its sincerity and objectivity The whole aim of the book is to give an overview of technology s effect on the human species Although it hurts us here and there, technology in and by itself has helped us tremen [...]

    3. From Rebel Angel.This is quite difficult for me to review as it s not the fiction that I usually read, but rather a sort of extended essay written by tech journalist Peter Nowak as a discussion of humanity at the current time It discusses the breakthroughs we ve recently had in terms of technology, talking about how what we take for granted now would have been simply inconceivable for humans only a matter of decades ago, and their advances in turn would have been so to generations before theirs [...]

    4. I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.It s easy to get worried about the future sometimes Climate change, an unstable economy, terrorist groups, government spying on its citizens, the combined impact of all this can really get you down, especially if you re an avid consumer of cable news In the grand scheme of human history, though, we ve actually got it pretty good right now, especially in the increasingly irrelevantly named developed world In the de [...]

    5. I would say this book is aimed at those with little knowledge of futurism, and is therefore mostly a broad overview of where we are right now Fortunately it is quite contemporary published in 2015 , because a lot of details are constantly changing So although I didn t learn a lot of new info, it was still all interesting and it did focus on different aspects than I expected social science than techy stuff happiness, religion, international relations, etc.

    6. An interesting read, well researched and written, but missed or glossed over far too many things for me to be convinced by its conclusions I wish it were all that easy but it s not Here s my thinking on it atlanticbookstoday humans 3

    7. The premise of the book is to create in the reader the feeling that the situation is not hopeless society is improving, getting healthier and happier And if you have been living under a stone, this might be news indeed But for the rest of us, the title of the book left something to be desired.

    8. Its nice to read a book about the way we use tech today that isn t all doom and gloom No huge revelations in here but lots of thought provoking information about where we are and where we could be going.

    9. Interesting but not much in the book that you don t know already unless you have been hiding away from technology and living in isolation I like the author s positive outlook regarding our relationships with technology, but I just do not find the content overly exciting.

    10. Not much new thinking here I liked the author s take on the current dialectic globalism vs individualism, both enabled by rapid technological developments His speculations about if or how these may merge are interesting.
