I was excited to read this book - but it was disappointed. The key problem, I think is the substantial 'political science' frame underlying the foresight analysis that shapes the book. Eric Schmidt is undoubtedly a very well informed person to engage in the future of technology - and has certainly a great deal of real life pragmatism in dealing with the politics that Google has to deal with. However, the book is a linear analysis of each theme and never seems to integrate the themes and trends into a picture that is more than the sum of its parts. The political science frame continues to see nations are relatively unchanged 'unitary' players in the 'game of world politics'. The ideas of the potential institutional innovations that technology can inspire are tepid at best.

All this said, I think the book is worth the read - but don't look for anything radical in its foresight

*A full executive summary of this book is available at newbooksinbrief dot com.

Many of us living in the developed world have come to rely very heavily on digital technology (including the internet and our mobile/smart devices)—indeed, for many of us, our relationship with our various screens is nothing short of addiction. And we are not the only ones who are plugging in. We are also increasingly hooking up our various man-made systems (such as our infrastructural systems and financial systems) to the internet as well. Given how radically digital technology has transformed our lives, it is incredible to think how recently all of this change has occurred; for, indeed, all of this technology has come upon us entirely in the past 15 to 20 years. This is significant because it reminds us that the age of connectivity is but in its infancy, and that most of the changes are yet to come.

This is true for us here in the developed world, but is even more so the case for those living in the developing world, where almost 5 billion people are expected to go from no connectivity to full connectivity within the next 20 years. While it may well be the case that the overall impact of the connectivity revolution will be enormously beneficial, we would be fool to think that the impact will be none but positive. With forces such as criminals, rebel groups, terrorists and rogue states prepared to take advantage of the new technology, the connectivity revolution poses some very serious challenges as well. Google executive Eric Schmidt and U.S.

As Executive Chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt knows about our new digital world. His perspectives are interesting. He looks into the future of topics like privacy, piracy, state censorship and cyber-terrorism.

The book itself is too long unless you're extremely interested in the topic or Eric.Don't be surprised if you feel you've heard similar things before (though perhaps not in a book).

Technology and its impact on future is what I am always looking for. I like this book for providing me a window on future.
