            Brian Greene takes readers on a breathtaking journey from the big bang to the end of time and invites us to ponder meaning in the face of this unimaginable expanse. He shows us how, despite the universe's tendency toward entropy, remarkable structures form: planets, stars, and ga...laxies provide islands in a sea of disorder; biochemical mechanisms animate life; neurons, information, and thought give rise to complex consciousness, which in turn creates cultures and their timeless myths and creativity. Through a series of nested stories Greene provides us with a clearer sense of how we came to be, a finer picture of where we are now, and a firmer understanding of where we are headed. Science has proven to be modern society's greatest source for meaning, and Brian Greene takes us on a grand tour of the universe while always keeping his eye on one central question: What does it all mean?

            We stand at a precipice - a point where the future is at stake. Humanity has come so far: ten thousand generations, each building on the work of their ancestors to reach the heights of culture and technology we see today. If we choose, we can continue this grand project, with eno...ugh time to end disease, poverty and injustice, and to fulfil our potential. But this future is at risk: for the first time, our power has grown so great that we have the ability to destroy ourselves. The Precipice is a clear-eyed look at the risks that we face, from the familiar, such as nuclear war and climate change, to the emerging, such as biotechnology and advanced artificial intelligence. It argues that ending these risks has become one of the most important moral issues of our time. What do we owe to the generations that follow us? This is an inspiring vision of human history, the legacy we will leave behind, and the steps we must take to work towards a brighter future.
