Some brief overview of this book

A page-turning exploration of eleven scenarios that may trigger the collapse of the modern world

A renowned systems theorist, John Casti shows how our world has become impossibly complicated, relying on ever more advanced technology that is developing at an exponential rate. Yet it is a fact of mathematical life that higher and higher levels of complexity lead to systems that are increasingly fragile and susceptible to sudden, spectacular collapse. Fascinating and chilling, X-Events provides a provocative tour of the catastrophic outlier scenarios that could quickly send us crashing back to the preindustrial age: global financial black swans; a worldwide crash of the Internet that would halt all communication; the end of oil; nuclear winter; nanoplagues; robot uprisings; electromagnetic pulses; pandemic viruses; and more. You wont ever look at the world the same way again.
