Non fiction books about the end of the world
Apocalyptic Non-Fiction (34 books)Saving
Will the future be dystopian? Can the human race even survive climate change and the ongoing mass extinction? Or does technology promise a far better and more hopeful future? They explore the impact of artificial intelligence and advanced robotics, the emergence of molecular nanotechnology, the private-sector space race, as well as climate change, the threat of a global pandemic, and other questions. Each is followed by a link to my review on this site. Diamandis and Steven Kotler— Does technology promise humanity a bright future? Eric Drexler— Nanotechnology and the future of our species.
Many of the best nonfiction books of the year so far ask readers to make change.

H aving written a number of popular science books , I decided three years ago to try my hand at fiction. How hard could it be, I reasoned arrogantly. Well, harder than I thought. So, when it came to writing my own sci-fi thriller, I felt I was very well placed to put in a lot of science and get it right. Setting the story two decades from now means I can make a reasonably reliable prediction of what the world might be like and extrapolate the science and tech of today into a plausible future. This is broader than just apocalyptic or postapocalyptic fiction, since it also encompasses disaster thrillers involving humanity under threat, whether or not that threat is averted.
