What can history's greatest breakthroughs in science and technology teach us about the future?

New Thinking: The world has never been so unstable. Now, more than ever, we need to understand our history, learn from our mistakes, and embrace science and technology as we push into the future. In his debut book, New Thinking: The Technology and Science That Transformed Our World, Dagogo Altraide of YouTube's ColdFusion breaks down the history of gamechanger breakthroughs in the world of science and technology that have shaped our modern world and will impact the future.  

Disruptive technology and innovation: The Industrial Revolution was the most significant event in human history since the domestication of animals and plants, leading to 50 years of growth and development making the western world almost unrecognizable. Today another revolution is taking place, and at its core is disruptive technology and innovation. It's clear that the pace of technology is increasing rapidly, and in the past 100 years, there has been more change due to disruptive technology than we could have ever imagined. The pace of this disruptive technology revolution is swift, almost exponential, but what's the story behind it? What were those special moments in time that changed the future forever?

From the steam engine revolution to the electric world of Tesla, the first photograph to the invention of the internet, this book explores the hidden secrets of science and technology to help us understand each gamechanger that has shaped the future.

In New Thinking: The Technology and Science That Transformed Our World, you will delight in learning about and appreciate:

  • How a technology can spawn a new technology and how they influence each other
  • How our modern world came to be
  • Our incredible modern world and potential for the future

Great Book

Great book, though if you've watched as much ColdFusion videos as I have then a good amount of it will be recycled to you.

thanks for the "read"

phenomenal narrative of history

I've picked up this book after finishing Sapiens and Guns, Germs and Steel. And I was pleasantly surprised on this very unique take on the history thru the tiny stories of the great minds of the last few hundreds years. I loved the way the book ends summarising how the boulder has started rolling and picked up speed. There are many ways one can look at what's happened and what might happen in future. This one is a geek's take which I found quite inspiring and reassuring.

History of our modern technology

A look back at the most groundbreaking inventions, forming the basis of todays modern and prosperous society.
This book touches on the development of countless different technologies, and the longer in-depth accounts are often deeply fascinating. The shorter 1-2 paragraph entries however, while still nice for the sake of historical completion, can feel a bit superfluous.

Outstanding

If you are looking for a joyous synopsis of technology through the 20th/21st centuries, look no further. I enjoyed this immensely.

I purchased the audio book and although I forgot about it quickly, the only thing missing was that Dagogo didn't narrate it himself - although I am sure this was for the sake of the American market.

Amazing book

I loved listening to this book. its a great piece by Dagogo. the only down side to me is being narrated by American rather than Dagogo himself since I'm a massive fan and old time subscriber to Cold Fusion YouTube channel but I understand its probably to reach wider audience and Ron did a great job narrating this book.

An inspiring look back to inspire the way forward.

A really interesting look back at poignant moments in history. A lot of well researched pieces and discovering people and moments I had never knew of before. The ones that I did know of were broadened and expanded my prior knowledge.
If you know of Cold Fusions channel I highly recommend this. I still recommend if you hadn’t. Then go look him up ‘cause he’s brilliant.
