The Top Trends that will reshape the world in the next 20 years!
Alas, I don't even know about my own future in the next 20 months, let alone 20 years! James Canton is convincingly enough. I have this book with me on my vacation to China & Mongolia but there was way too much distraction to complete the book in a single session and too many concepts that's mind-boggling as well as thought provoking to actually read it for leisure. It is however an excellent book, as with books by my favorite author Thomas Friedman. I love his concept of a futurist and also his analysis about the world trends. Some of the concepts I've read before but in this book, it's further illustrated and brought forth to a conceptual whole. Everything fits and it pays to know what is what.
I will not try to attempt to explain and analyse all the details about the trends. It is highly recommended that you read the book yourself as I believe some of the concepts pertain to your own unique situation. In some ways, James Canton has similar thoughts about global warming as with Thomas Friedman. I must admit I'm only halfway through the book and will try to come back to expand this review when I'm done. Still, as much as I've read it now, it's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you get a copy of it asap!
