The Runaway Species: The PBS Star Writes a New Book about the Creative Mind
The Runaway Species is a deep-dive into the creative mind, a celebration of the human spirit, and a vision of how humanity can improve our future by understanding and embracing our ability to innovate. David Eagleman and Anthony Brandt rifle through the inventions of human society like paleontologists ransacking the fossil record. Exploring examples from Apollo 13 to Pablo Picasso, they seek to answer the question: what lies at the heart of humanity’s ability—and drive—to create?
