I like my horizons expansive and my details thorough. I enjoy reading about self-improvement, psychology, behavior change, technology, sociology, sci-fi, fantasy, history, cognitive science and other emerging sciences. I have a technology and business background and I'm an active gamer on most platforms available.

    According to even the most conservative estimates, China will overtake the United States as the world's largest economy by 2027 and will ascend to the position of world economic leader by 2050. But the full repercussions of China's ascendancy-for itself and the rest of the globe-have been surprisingly little explained or understood.

    David Blake says: "Lucid explanation of global economic trends"
    "Good data, but poor delivery"
    Overall

    The information provided by Jacques is thought provoking, but his writing style makes this book almost unreadable. I found the writing style to be wordy. At multiple times, I felt the author was using large unnecessary words just for the heck of it.

    A visionary and optimistic thinker examines the tension between privacy and publicness that is transforming how we form communities, create identities, do business, and live our lives. The Internet, he argues, will change business, society, and life as profoundly as Gutenberg’s invention, shifting power from old institutions to us all.

    Story

    I highly recommend this book to everyone. The information shared by Jeff in this book is applicable to everyone on the planet. I feel this book describes the shifting paradigm that is beneath our feed. Many existing institutions are being forced to cope with the way society is changing because of our hyper-connected-ness. The internet not only allows us to share and interact with one another, but it opens new opportunities for us to improve our world and our society.

    In addition to the great information in this book, I learned about many great websites that I was unfamiliar with. I started using or visiting some of the sites on a regular basis.
