Reviews

"In a world of continual change and upheaval, the greatest value that a book such as this can provide to a reader is to challenge conventional wisdom and provide a basis to develop new thinking. Robert Davies has done this. Read this book and you'll think differently about the world afterwards." Professor Scott Moeller, Director, M&A Research Centre, Cass Business School

"Dr. Davies gives us a thought-provoking look at the world's emerging economic, political and social structures that challenges popular assumptions and traditional views about the shape of our future world and the paths we may take to get there. This book will change the way you think about how the world works. A must-read for leaders looking to steer global organizations through the uncertainty of a world in transition." Steven Spano, President, Generali UK

"Robert Davies provokes the reader in a manner that no business thinker has succeeded in doing since Michael Porter revolutionised our understanding of competitive strategy. After reading this book, the jigsaw pieces of the new world order that include the Euro Crisis, nationalism, religion and secularism will lock together to build a route map to the future." Sam Kingston, Managing Director T-Systems
