Burrus and Mann set out to open the eyes of readers to how they might better see into and adapt to the future. They set out a set of seven principles in corresponding chapters to make their points. A beauty of the book is the writing and absolutely contemporary examples they provide. Though the examples will quickly become passé, the book will continue to be valuable. Essentially, they suggest that the basis for seeing into the future is to start with what is certain about the future. Verification of hard trends provides a framework to which statistical calculation of odds might be added. Subsequently, the authors reveal how we can leverage technology, skip over seemingly intractable problems, go in the opposite direction, leverage our unique strengths, and direct the future. I have been aware of these principles for some time, but Burrus and Mann give these approaches a new urgency and relevance. They provide a structure through which anyone can make better use of their talents, skills, and strengths. This book was an inspiration. The reading of William Dufris is just right for the text. Anyone can benefit from the work of Burrus and Mann.

I had to listen to this book twice. It gave me so many ideas! I find myself at various times, while jogging, stopping, recording the idea it gave me before continuing the book.
If you are fascinated by technology, or want to know what the future holds technologically you need this book! This guy knows his stuff.
