‘Stop following the news until you’ve read Gemma Milne’s persuasive analysis of the hype and bullshit that distort our understanding of emerging science. As she shows, the starting point to grasping the genuine opportunities of AI, life sciences and climate tech is a healthy dose of critical thinking’
David Rowan, founding editor of WIRED UK
