And in each of these realms, Ross addresses the toughest questions: How will we have to adapt to the changing nature of work' Is the prospect of cyberwar sparking the next arms race' How can the world's rising nations hope to match Silicon Valley in creating their own innovation hotspots' Ross blends storytelling and economic analysis to give a vivid and informed perspective on how sweeping global trends are affecting the ways we live, incorporating the insights of leaders ranging from tech moguls to defense experts.

Great book on how the economic landscape will change in the next 20 years. It is a must read for someone planning to make a career choice. You want to choose an upcoming industry, not the one that will vanish. It is a great continuation to the ideas initiated by the book "The Inevitable" by Kevin Kelly.
