Steven Johnson is the leading light of today's interdisciplinary, collaborative, open-minded approach to innovation. His writings have influenced everything from cutting-edge ideas in urban planning to the battle against 21st-century terrorism. Steven was chosen by Prospect magazine as one of the Top Ten Brains of the Digital Future, and The Wall Street Journal called him “one of the most persuasive advocates for the role of collaboration in innovation.”• He unites a deep understanding of scientific progress with a sharp sensitivity to contemporary online trends. Together, those traits give him an unmatched insight into how ideas emerge and spread and how they affect the world today. His newest book, Farsighted: How We Make the Decisions That Matter the Most (Sept 2018), is full of the beautifully crafted storytelling and novel insights that Johnson's fans know to expect. Steven examines consequential once-in-lifetime decisions; the ones that affect our lives for years, or centuries, to come. Farsighted draws lessons from cognitive science, social psychology, military strategy, environmental planning, and great works of literature.
