Reviewed in Australia on 11 January 2020
It certainly deserves 5 stars. But, (and isn't there always a but?), at first the author seems to be using the word hope in place of ambition, greed and the lust for power of individuals and groups. But then he clarifies how he sees hope as the external belief in things, leaders, and institutions. By the end of the book he does come to realize that true hope must be internal. Hope in ourselves. That we do have the capacity to BE better I agree with his thoughts on this. It's how I see hope; as belief in ourselves and others. However he then lapses into his old externalized version of hope, in the institutions we will create and how we will use AI in the creation of a new and better religion to place our hope in. We don't need another religion. We just need to believe in the innate capacity and desire of ourselves to be better and the rest will take care of itself. I don't think this review will ruin the book for you, as you need to read it to see who you agree with.
