I was drawn to the title of this book and was even more appreciative of the lessons offered. Mr. Friedman describes his book as “one giant column about the world today” and I agree. He aims to define the key forces driving change and how to cushion the impact. He covers Moore’s Law, meditation, and evolution — not small topics! This book is not a light read and, at a little over 450 pages, expect to be in it for a while. He lost me in some of the specifics of technology and caught me up in other ways–like his contemplation about creating dynamic stability in our political and social realms through innovation in everything other than technology. This is a “make you think“ read–best in doses of one chapter at a time.
