Summary
John L Casti is a renowned systems theorist. In this gripping analysis he shows how the world has become impossibly complicated, relying on ever more advanced technology that is developing at an exponential rate. Each chapter takes on an new "X-event", ranging from the crash of the internet and electronic to pandemics. A provocative and chilling warning about our vulnerability to extreme events that could topple civilization as we know it. "Dazzling ... A delightful tour de force" (LA Times)
