The Precipice: Existential Risk and the Future of Humanity
Why this book?
The central metaphor of the book is that humanity stands at a precipice. With new technology, we are rapidly gaining the ability to destroy ourselves, and the threat of an existential catastrophe looms large over our generation. But, if we get things right, we might be able to enjoy a long and flourishing future.
Toby’s book is the best resource we know of on what you need to know about these risks, and how you could have a high positive impact by working to prevent them.
