    In an unparalleled collaboration, two leading global thinkers in technology and foreign affairs give us their widely anticipated, transformational vision of the future: a world where everyone is connected - a world full of challenges and benefits that are ours to meet and to harness. Eric Schmidt is one of Silicon Valley’s great leaders, having taken Google from a small startup to one of the world’s most influential companies. Jared Cohen is the director of Google Ideas and a former adviser to secretaries of state Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton.

    Mike says: "Disappointing. At once obvious and curious."
    "Ten Thousand Unsupported Claims About the Future"

    Story

    The insightful message of this book could be reduced to "the internet will change the future". The content of the book is a rapid-fire stream of claims about the future, all made with absolute confidence, and little supporting evidence. This wasn't the worst futurist book I've read, but it certainly didn't bring me any useful insights.
