He has a big future shaping the future' Observer'A more politically radical Malcolm Gladwell' New York Times'The Dutch wunderkind of new ideas' GuardianIn Utopia for Realists, Rutger Bregman shows that we can construct a society with visionary ideas that are, in fact, wholly implementable. Every milestone of civilisation - from the end of slavery to the beginning of democracy - was once considered a utopian fantasy. New utopian ideas such as universal basic income and a fifteen-hour work week can become reality in our lifetime.From a Canadian city that once completely eradicated poverty, to Richard Nixon's near implementation of a basic income for millions of Americans, Bregman takes us on a journey through history, beyond the traditional left-right divides, as he introduces ideas whose time has come.*This book has been updated with a sticker on the front cover.

He has published four books on history, philosophy and economics, and has twice been nominated for the prestigious European Press Prize. The Dutch edition of Utopia for Realists became an international bestseller and has been translated into 23 languages.


Fantastic. Bregman will help you raise your spirits and banish your Brexit blues
This is a Read Now book. Nothing dystopian about this one: a practical set of ideas for how the next generation can do better
If you're bored with hackneyed debates, decades-old right-wing and left-wing clichés, you may enjoy the bold thinking, fresh ideas, lively prose, and evidence-based arguments in Utopia for Realists
This is a book stuffed full of ideas, presented persuasively and pithily, but it is also just a part of the new zeitgeist - which is why it is one for today's dreamers and tomorrow's realists
Rutger Bregman is the most exciting radical thinker of my generation. If you read him and you aren't thrilled, mentally expanded, and infused with hope, call for the undertaker - I suspect you've died. Oh - and did I mention he is a beautiful writer too?
Listen out for Rutger Bregman. He has a big future shaping the future
The Dutch wunderkind of new ideas
An excellent read and full of well-told stories and details I didn't know
If you're fed up with moaning, you owe it to yourself to read this book
If energy, enthusiasm and aphorism could make the world better, then Rutger Bregman's book would do it ... The writing is powerful and fluent ... A boisterously good read
It's a wonderful, well-written book, easily the crispest and least dry explanation of the research and history behind basic income as an idea I've seen in print. The sixth chapter, on the bizarre history of Richard Nixon's 1970 plan for a negative income tax, is worth the price of admission alone
I was moved and convinced by Bregman saying we might not achieve Utopia but could find solace in working towards a fairer world ... This book is energetic, passionate and rigorously intelligent. His commonsensical ideas deserve to be gratefully welcomed
You may not dream the same dreams as Bregman - but he invites you to take dreaming seriously. For that alone, this book is worth a read
Brilliant, comprehensive, truly enlightening, and eminently readable Obligatory reading for everyone worried about the wrongs of present-day society and wishing to contribute to their cure
A wonderfully readable breath of fresh air, a window thrown open to a better future ... Bregman combines deep research with wit, challenging us to think anew about how we want to live and who we want to be. Required reading
Superbly written, upbeat, insightful
If you'd like to see a fairer world but don't know how to get there, this book is for you. Bregman brilliantly shows how ideas commonly dismissed as utopian are eminently possible, indeed have almost happened
Bregman shows us we've been looking at the world inside out. Turned right way out we suddenly see fundamentally new ways forward. If we can get enough people to read this book, the world will start to become a better place
A boisterously good read
Rutger Bregman makes a compelling case for Universal Basic Income with a wealth of data and rooted in a keen understanding of the political and intellectual history of capitalism. He shows the many ways in which human progress has turned a Utopia into a Eutopia - a positive future that we can achieve with the right policies
The impact of this book in the Netherlands has been huge. Not only did Rutger Bregman launch a highly successful and long-running debate in the media, he also inspired a movement across the country that is putting his ideas into practice. Now it's time for the rest of the world
I loved it . Bregman takes an idea you think sounds daft and does a brilliant job of persuading you it isn't daft at all
A wonderful call to utopian thinking around incomes and the workweek, and a welcome antidote to the pessimism surrounding robots taking our jobs
A bold call for utopian thinking . Highly recommended!
A short, sharp big ideas book set to make waves
Superbly written, upbeat, insightful
Utopia for Realists is tipped to be a bestseller in English as it was in its original Dutch
Bregman writes with energy, verve and panache . Utopia for Realists will probably be a terrific hit
Bregman has many tightly-spun arguments, case studies, and statistics . He treats his topic with an accessible style and touch of humour
Bregman's book is breezy, wide-ranging and littered with interesting examples and research. It has something of the flavour of Freakonomics
Energetic, passionate and rigorously intelligent. His commonsensical ideas deserve to be gratefully welcomed
A brilliantly written page-turner. It goes into serious depth, without ever feeling dense, as it weaves its way through the challenges we face and onto proposals for doing things differently
The questions that Bregman poses must be addressed, and urgently
