Read rave reviews from famous authors, scientists, and business leaders below.
“This energetic and enthusiastic book gives a fascinating glimpse of the blue revolution to come, as human beings experiment with more sustainable ways of managing the biology of the sea — and to experiment with more sustainable ways of living and governing ourselves as well, free from the constraints of land-based governments.”
--- Matt Ridley, author of The Evolution of Everything and The Rational Optimist
“Really disruptive, definitely visionary, and even more proof that tomorrow will look nothing like today. Seasteading is a grand adventure in sustainability and possibility and it’s definitely a trip worth taking!”
--- Steven Kotler, author of Rise of Superman, Bold and Abundance.
“Seasteading is an enormous opportunity for humanity. Not only will these sea-based communities be able to try new sciences and technology . . . they will allow new forms of community with a fresh start, and an ability to experiment as to form. . . . Anyone willing to work for a living can come and go from a seastead. People can finally be citizens of the world.”
—Timothy Draper, founder of Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Draper University, and author of the 6 Californias Initiative.
“Passionate and convincing. The idea of individual sovereignty could finally come true with floating ocean cities.”
-- Titus Gebel, co-founder & CEO of Deutsche Rohstoff AG, Rhein Petroleum, and Free Private Cities Ltd.
"Joe Quirk has a fascinating and convincing book on Seasteading out in March (co-written with Seasteading Institute founder Patri Friedman) in which the ecological and business advantages of using the ocean are frontloaded, just as they are in the agreement with French Polynesia."
-- Brian Doherty, Reason Magazine
"Wow! Wow! Wow! Best book I've read in a decade. SEASTEADING is the grand masterpiece I've long sought to write, bringing together the essential essence of ideas, people and organizations toward the Blue Revolution. I've mostly only pontificated. Joe and Patri, with the help of Peter Thiel and many others, are well on their way to making the crucial difference so necessary to bring reality from concept. I congratulate them for their vision and effectiveness. Let me know how Blue Revolution Hawaii and I can be of any assistance."
-- electrochemical engineer Patrick Takahashi, leader of OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion)
