while I was expecting them to mention the lifestyle related impact of digital age advances, getting a view of how the digital age affects societies all around the world and our interaction as individuals and nations gave me a broader perspective of the far reaching consequences of these advances. .. awesome!
Would you try another book from Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen and/or Roger Wayne?
No - sorry fellows it seems liked you got your information from the newspapers and turned it into a book. I found the book boring and nothing new, no real insights unless you want to do something illegal.
Would you ever listen to anything by Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen again?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The New Digital Age?
I am not a terrorist and 99% of the readers are not so give the 99% something new about the digital age rather than educating terrorists
Dissapointment, expected much more. Book is mostly about authors' need to explain future of countries, wars, terrorism, politics, restructuring... While it starts with promising ideas, it turns into political pamflet against totalitarian regimes, with emphasises on stories which I already heard in past years.
Also, it is interesting that while authors spend hundreds of pages on these problems, they manage to escape from criticising big technological corporations, or even delve into potential problems which are already apparent and will become worse.

Kept rumbling on terrorism and how America fights terrorism, the author position America as the holy country and demonize other countries, such as Iraq, Iran, China, North Korea. Fit right into the labels traditional Western media places on those countries.
Of those things the author accused these countries of, such as cyber attacks, etc, I'm sure the US and Western Countries have done all those things too. The author did not mention any of that - he kept placing the US on high moral grounds...such ideals would be outdated in today's world.
Biased and arrogant book. A waste of money and pollutes understand of the world.
