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.
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.
