Brilliant but overlooked ideas you must know, as revealed by Steven Pinker, Jared Diamond, Lisa Randall, Richard Thaler, Carlo Rovelli, Richard Dawkins, Helen Fisher, Ian McEwen, and more of today’s most innovative minds • A top-ten San Francisco Chronicle bestseller!

What scientific term or concept ought to be more widely known? That is the question John Brockman, publisher of the acclaimed science salon Edge.org (“The world’s smartest website”—The Guardian), presented to 205 of the world’s most influential thinkers from across the intellectual spectrum—award-winning physicists, economists, psychologists, philosophers, novelists, artists, and more. From the origins of the universe to the order of everyday life, This Idea Is Brilliant takes readers on a tour of the bold, exciting, and underappreciated scientific concepts that will enrich every mind.
