SAFE introduces readers to the most fascinating and ingenious problem-solvers of our day - the gathering force of scientists, engineers, technologists, and inventors who have been trying to guard against both visible and invisible threats to our safety . Since 9/11, Americans and our leadership have been on a steep learning curve - trying to understand how new technologies can help protect against catastrophic acts of terrorism. Yet these men and women were hard at it long before most of us were aware that the advances that gave us e-mail, wireless connectivity, and access to the human genome, also paved the way for untraceable terrorist communications, cell phone-activated bombs, bio-terror, and chemical and cyber warfare, just to name a few.
SAFE moves us beyond these increasingly prevalent buzz phrases to reveal a rich, compelling narrative of discovery and breakthrough ideas, and of wonderfully idiosyncratic and inspiring characters whose work has been largely hidden until now. Consider this book The Soul of a New Machine, re-imagined for the challenges of a newly dangerous world.
