    the idea that progress is inevitable and the future will always be better than the past.

    Not sure I agree but a good book to argue against.

    Also, Matt Ridley's other books are all good reads as well. ” — Robyn Metzger (RobynMetzger), i_am_a_bunny (i_am_a_bunny) and 18 others like this. Predicted Sucesses for "Buy this book and plant a tree": 17 likes Value of Prediction if it succeeds: $1,000,000 = [math]\frac{17}{10} \times 1000000[/math] = $17,000,000 Value of Prediction if it fails: $0 = [math]\frac{0}{10} \times 1000000[/math] = $0  So if you buy this book and plant a tree then you are potentially worth about $17 million dollars more than you were before you read the book (if my prediction is correct). I think there's a good chance it will succeed because the idea is simple and powerful. But I don't know for sure so let's see what happens! If I am wrong then at least I get to read some interesting books! Also, note that my prediction has an "X" on it now so no one can use it in their own bets anymore. It's mine!
