Scatter, Adapt And Remember: How Humans Will Survive a Mass Extinction

Climate change. Pandemics. Catastrophic volcanoes.

Here’s how Homo sapiens will survive the next mass extinction.

This speculative and hopeful work of popular science focuses our attention on humanity’s long history of dodging the bullet of extinction—and suggests practical ways to keep doing it. From bacteria labs in St. Louis to ancient underground cities in central Turkey, we discover the keys to long-term survival. This book leads us away from apocalyptic thinking, into a future where we live to build a better world.

A finalist for the L.A. Times Book Prize, and a Scientific American recommended book.
