Matt Ridley’s new book has a release-date, is available for pre-order on Amazon

Matt Ridley (The Rational Optimist) has his new book available for pre-order on Amazon UK. Fourth Estate is set to ship his The Evolution of Everything: How New Ideas Emerge on 24th September 2015. Apparently it’s a simultaneous release of the hardback, paperback, and Kindle ebook.

The Evolution of Everything is about bottom-up order and its enemy, the top-down twitch, the endless fascination human beings have for design rather than evolution, for direction rather than emergence. And although we neglect, defy and ignore them, bottom-up trends still shape the world.”

It seems we have to wait a little longer for the audio book version, which is set for release on 3rd November 2015.
