Marc Andreessen

“In More from Less Andrew McAfee conclusively demonstrates how environmentalism requires more technology and capitalism, not less. Our modern technologies actually dematerialize our consumption, giving us higher human welfare with lower material inputs. This is an urgently needed and clear-eyed view of how to have our technological cake and eat it too.”

Dambisa Moyo

“More from Less is a must-read—a timely and refreshing book! Amidst the din of voices insisting that the ravages of climate change are unstoppable, McAfee offers a desperately needed nuanced perspective on what governments and society have got right, and he compellingly argues that commendable progress has already been made. His book is not a call for complacency; rather, it’s a welcome and thoughtful recognition of where we’ve succeeded and a practical path for what more can be achieved in the efficient use of natural resources. A gem of a book!”
