Out of Control is the breakthrough concept of contemporary science
and technology. It links the best of cutting-edge biology, computer science,
economics, organizational theory, art, and much more. No longer just the
best journalist on the subject, Kevin Kelly with this book is actively
shaping the intellectual explosion.
Stewart Brand, author of The Media Lab
Want a conceptual toolkit for creating creation? Here it is. In
Out of Control, Kevin Kelly does more than explain lucidly
the mind-boggling new science and technology of emergent phenomena.
The book changed everything I thought I knew about the meaning of
evolution and life. Kelly provides a stunning reply, twenty-five
years later, to Stewart Brand's challenge in the first Whole
Earth Catalogs: 'We are as gods and might as well get good at it.'
Howard Rheingold, author of The Virtual Community
Kevin Kelly's wonderfully perceptive new book shatters more paradigms
per page than any other text in this decade.
Bruce Sterling, author of Islands in the Net
Kevin Kelly's Out of Control is a sweeping and imaginative
tour de force... fractal and far-out, chaotic and post-Darwinian,
and reaching for the Divine.
George Gilder, author of Wealth and Poverty
