Reviews

A prophet who deserves every honour the human race can bestow.--Guardian--

The greatest scientific thinker of our time.

--Sunday Times--

The scientist who changed our view of the Earth.

--Independent--

The most influential scientist and writer since Charles Darwin.

--Irish Times--

The visionary who gave the world Gaia theory.

--Daily Telegraph--

Novacene is the collected wisdom of an elder of our tribe which more than repays the short time it takes to read.

--Financial Times--

Are robots going to kill us all? They might if they feel like it, says the scientist James Lovelock in his new book. Or they might not. Look, it's not very important. I have never read a jauntier book about artificial intelligence taking over the world.
