Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think, by Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler

The writers refer to the book's title as being a future where nine billion people have access to clean water, food, energy, health care, education, and everything else that is necessary for a first world standard of living, thanks to technological innovation. The book's four main points are: Technologies in computing, energy, medicine and many other areas are improving at an exponential rate and will soon enable breakthroughs that today seem impossible. These technologies have allowed independent innovators to achieve startling advances in many areas of technology with little money or manpower. Technology has created a generation of ""techno-philanthropists"" (such as Bill Gates) who are using their billions to try to solve seemingly unsolvable problems such as hunger and disease. The lives of the world's poorest people are being improved substantially because of technology.
