Editor Max Brockman introduces the work of some of todayrsquo;s brightest and most innovative young scientists in this fascinating and exciting collection of writings that describe the very boundaries of our knowledge.

Featured in this collection are William McEwan (son of the novelist), a virologist, discussing his research into the biology of antiviral immunity; Naomi Eisenberger, a neuroscientist, wondering how social rejection affects us physically; Jon Kleinberg, a computer scientist, showing what massive datasets can teach us about society and ourselves; and Anthony Aguirre, a physicist, who gives readers a tantalizing glimpse of infinity.
