Next 100 Years Hard to Prove Wrong,
This review is from: Next 100 Years, The (Paperback)
George Friedman is in the happy position that there will no one reading now who will be alive to point out any flaws in his predictions in 100 years time. However, this kind of prediction is a brave call and unless supported by sound reasoning is open for challenges ranging from polite disagreement to carping acrimony. Happily, Friedman's book is well reasoned and his predictions, which range from the near to the distant future, are all sustained by well-founded argument. While it is unlikely that anyone engaged in this degree of prediction could be totally accurate, George Friedman's book at least identifies possible trends across a range if disciplines over progressive periods of time.
'The Next 100' is a good book, soundly argued, interesting and a must read for anyone wanting to be an interesting conversationalist at any dinner party or if trying to impress a lady with some intellectual underpinnings. A book you will remember for some time.
