Two main themes are explored in many of the chapters in Managing in the Next Society: the rapidly expanding information shock wave that had its Internet Big Bang as recently as 1995, and the changing shape of our society to come. Among the six major trends reshaping our lives are: The Global Baby Bust; The New U.S. Demographics; and The New Work Force - trends that are rapidly transforming our world into what Peter Drucker calls the Next Society.

"For years, Drucker has written expertly about what he knows best, and his wisdom shines through here. His loyal audience will line up for this "one." (Booklist)
"True to form, his often deeply contrarian insights are authoritatively represented, backed up with rich historical precedents and persuasively argued." (Money Magazine)
Best to pass on this. The book is just a rehash of pre-internet bubble interviews. Not much substance at all. I am a fan of Drucker, but was dissapointed with this book.
This was my first Peter Durcker book, but it will not be my last. Fantastic insight on trends in business in society from some one who has been keenly observing the world change since the 1920's. He is still right on the mark bringing today's very recent internet happenings and putting them in pertinent historical context. I look forward to more of his work.
Yes ... and I have recommend it to many others
Even ten years later the predictions are valid.

This is one of those books that switches your brain into high gear. It is fascinating to hear Peter Drucker´s ideas, some so simple and logic, some so far from what you might have thought yourself, but always able to spin your mind into deep thoughts. Nothing to be taken lightly, this is no book for a relaxed moment, but it is a tour through the words written by a great mind that can express himself in an unforgettable way.
