    Ours is a time of revolutionary change that has no precedent in history. With the same passion he brought to the challenge of climate change, and with his decades of experience on the front lines of global policy, Al Gore surveys our planet’s beclouded horizon and offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast in the visionary tradition of Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock and John Naisbitt’s Megatrends. In The Future, Gore identifies the emerging forces that are reshaping our world....

    Story
    Where does The Future rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high. It's a concise expanded essay on the challenges facing the global community and the United States in particular. Gore spends a good deal of time laying the groundwork for each challenge that will impact the future of humanity--from global climate change (his linchpin issue) to the use of biotech and its ethical considerations, to the interconnected, fragile global financial system.


    What other book might you compare The Future to and why?

    Al Gore's The Assault On Reason is a nice introduction to the topics in this book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The description of the use of fiber optic lines in providing the financial industry ever increasing transaction speeds.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it is long.
