Publisher's Summary

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. With their combined knowledge and experiences, the authors are uniquely positioned to take on some of the toughest questions about our future: Who will be more powerful in the future, the citizen or the state? Will technology make terrorism easier or harder to carry out? What is the relationship between privacy and security, and how much will we have to give up to be part of the new digital age?

In this groundbreaking book, Schmidt and Cohen combine observation and insight to outline the promise and peril awaiting us in the coming decades. At once pragmatic and inspirational, this is a forward-thinking account of where our world is headed and what this means for people, states and businesses.

With the confidence and clarity of visionaries, Schmidt and Cohen illustrate just how much we have to look forward to - and beware of - as the greatest information and technology revolution in human history continues to evolve.

Inspiring, provocative and absorbing, The New Digital Age is a brilliant analysis of how our hyper-connected world will soon look, from two of our most prescient and informed public thinkers.

    "Awesome. Brilliant Book."
    What made the experience of listening to The New Digital Age the most enjoyable?

    Cannot recommend this book enough, really good overview and the most enjoyable part was the fast pace, the vision of the future & the history of other political climates. Really awesome!

    "The future is here"

    Insight by two tech pioneers on what tomorrow will hold. Part dystopian warning and part optimistic tale of want tomorrow could hold. Very thought provoking.

    Story
    "A disappointing audiobook"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator made some major gaffes.


    If you’ve listened to books by Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen before, how does this one compare?

    not applicable


    What aspect of Roger Wayne’s performance would you have changed?

    In one section he refers to NATO's activities in Siberia, which clearly should have been Serbia - this was one of several gaffes. This particular one really needs to be fixed by Audible. I'm amazed that the narrator didn't realize the error and even more amazed that the producer/editor didn't catch it.


    Was The New Digital Age worth the listening time?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    No
