Mankind owes Patrick Dixon a considerable degree of gratitude for his latest overview of the trends facing the world today. The pace of his presentation is matched by the readability of his text. The amazing breadth of his understanding is displayed without arrogance but quiet authority. As one of the foremost thinkers in the world today, Patrick has shared with us a unique insight into his analysis of our societies, businesses, cultures and religions that is both broad and deep. Every leader, CEO, politician, archbishop and business student should read this book.

Whilst a title like "The Future of Almost Everything" might invite a groan and might seem hubristic, I'm very glad I persisted- futurology doesn't always impress but almost all of Patrick Dixon's "forecasts" seem very sane.

His FUTURE approach (i.e. Fast, Urban, Tribal, Universal, Radical and Ethical) is very comprehensive. Whilst business and corporate planner might tend to focus on the Fast,Urban and Universal trends, it may well be the case that the other three are often just as important.

In the course of only 323 pages this book showers us with striking observations. Dixon is at pains to stress he is dealing with what will happen, not necessarily what we might like to see happen. Whilst UK readers may find some of his analysis disconcerting, I suspect so will people living in France, Germany, the US, Russia and Nigeria (amongst others).

Interestingly, Dixon regards himself as an optimist- we have the creativity and resources to deal with many of the problems of today. His book is a welcome challenge to become a better informed and more active and ethical citizen.

This is a fascinating, challenging and thought-provoking book. Dr Dixon covers a vast range of subjects and opens a very insightful window on the future. His previous book "Futurewise" has proved to be so accurate his predictions here for the next 20 years demand very careful attention. It is a "must read" for business leaders as it will help them create their longer-term strategies. For an older generation, like me, it paints a fascinating picture of the world my grandchildren are growing up into. A very highly recommended read.

The Future of Almost Everything is an inspiring and challenging book in equal measure. A highly recomended read for both business and community leaders alike. Patrick's 'six faces of the future' model is both enlightening and startling.
Patrick's ability throughout the book to bring home to a personal level the global situations he explores reminds the reader that we are all responsible for how the future will pan out and that we must not simply adopt an ostrich approach and except that global forces of change are beyond our control.
The book promotes a truly aspirational world view that each of us has the power to create a future that we believe in and that can create a better world.

The reviews for Patrick Dixon's new book are wonderfully positive. And they are right. Throughout this lucid and eminently readable book there are valuable insights on every page, and explanations aplenty, together with persuasive projections and forecasts. Yet there is an impressive fairness about matters that are still contested and where the outcome is not a given. Hence the author makes careful use of "Expect that ....." rather than making unequivocal assertions about the shape of our futures. This fine book will enlighten and enthuse you about the prospects for our World,

A must read and a "to be kept" reference for everyone, and especially for those who are interested in an intelligent, thorough and thought-provoking look at what the future may hold. And given the accuracy of Patrick's first book "Futurewise" on this subject nearly 20 years ago then this must be taken very seriously. Patrick has a gift for understanding themes and paradigms that we live in today and how they influence and determine likely paths into the future. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This a book you should read if you're at all interested in what is ahead of us. It is comprehensive and insightful. Some predictions may turn out to be wrong, but it's thought-provoking, without doubt.
