2.0 out of 5 stars
Summary, incomplete and unsubstantiated analysis, 1 May 2010
I was quite dissappointed with the book because it specifically does not peer into the next 50 years rather into the next 10 at most.
Global warming is dismissed as a problem that will likely not be relevant, nuclear proliferation also generally dismissed as many other game changing themes that we face.
Basically it is a book of opinions of the author without much of a logical discussion or framework for the work of futurologist. The author will be correct on many points but I have shelved the book as one to refer to for the points he will predict inaccurately over the next 50 years rather than targeted correctly..
It might be a useful read to understand the problem with reading futures.
