«Immaculately researched, splendidly written and an antidote to despair.»

Literary Review

«Fisher has poured a decade's worth of thinking [into the problems of short-termism] into The Long View. The result is an erudite survey of a subject he believes could decide the fate of humanity ... compelling ... I hope our political class reads and absorbs this book

The Sunday Times

«In this uplifting and hopeful book, science journalist Fisher explores the folly of short-termism and invites us to revise our attitude to time, to embrace the long view, not as a solemn duty but for a deeper, more fulfilling life.»

SAGA Magazine

«The Long View is a manifesto calling for a radical reconception of our relationship with time. Richard Fisher documents the social, psychological, and economic reasons we have become stranded on the Island of Now - and charts routes for us to get back to the mainland.»

Marcia Bjornerud, author of TIMEFULNESS

«Few books can claim to shake your perspective on life, but The Long View does exactly that ... a landmark book that could help to build a much brighter future for many generations to come.»

David Robson, author of THE EXPECTATION EFFECT

«Some of our greatest powers derive from our ability to think about the future. Fisher takes us on a fascinating tour of long-mindedness, and why it matters.»

Thomas Suddendorf, Professor of Psychology, University of Queensland, and co-author of THE INVENTION

«A soaring hymn to all that might lie in the future; alongside the diverse and beautiful ways to think about it. Overflowing with wisdom and insight.»

Thomas Moynihan, author of X-RISK: HOW HUMANITY DISCOVERED ITS OWN EXTINCTION

«Hope-filled and revelatory... Beautifully readable and scholarly, rich and personal, this book shows how, to leave a robust legacy for the future, we need to overcome our bias for the present.»

Rowan Hooper, author of HOW TO SPEND A TRILLION DOLLARS

«A wise, humane book laced with curiosity and hope. It will open your mind and horizons - and leave you giddy at the prospect of all that we may yet become.»

Tom Chatfield, author of HOW TO THINK

«I cannot recommend enough! Profoundly thought-provoking, and at times movingly personal, it's a deep exploration of our relationship with time and how we can navigate the coming centuries.»

Prof. Lewis Dartnell, author of THE KNOWLEDGE

«Philosophical, insightful and entertaining. In a world of short-sightedness, The Long View is a helpful guide to understand and connect us to the future. In the light of the climate emergency, long-term thinking is more urgent than ever

Andri Snær Magnason, author of ON TIME AND WATER

«A captivating guide... The Long View is simply crammed with interesting ideas. This is a beautifully turned, calmly persuasive but urgent book.»

Ian McEwan, Sunday Times bestselling author of ATONEMENT and LESSONS

«Moving beyond the abjection that dominates today's headlines about the future, Richard Fisher charts a hope-fuelled path toward the twenty-third century. Lucidly written, The Long View challenges us to remove our temporal blinkers and embrace a more long-minded awareness of humanity's future possibilities. An astounding read.»

Vincent Ialenti, author of DEEP TIME RECKONING

«Urgent and profound. Richard Fisher's The Long View shows how thinking differently about time can change the world. The future begins with how we imagine it.»

David Farrier, author of FOOTPRINTS: IN SEARCH OF FUTURE FOSSILS
