A forecast of the most important game-changing trends--and how to manage and profit from them to improve your life.
We live in a time of complex and radical change. Those who are ill prepared for the seismic shifts set to occur over the next 30 years will be in for a rough ride.

Going beyond prediction, Canton shows listeners how to get future smart with strategic steps they can take today to navigate tomorrow successfully.

Breathtaking strategic foresight.<br />

James Canton is one of the most detailed researchers and futurists of our time. He possesses an understanding of the core dilemmas we face as a species yet equally he offers solutions and opportunities which makes the book fascinating and an easy thematic read.

Hang In There ...

Any additional comments?

The first couple chapters were sluggish and felt redundant to me. However, once James Canton got into the heart of the subject matter I found myself bookmarking and googling like crazy. He goes way way out there into the future but keeps the reader firmly planted in the here and now. Really suggest this book if you're the type of person who's always asking the question .. What's Next?
