Reviews

'Based on substantial research, including data from many Fortune 100 companies, this is a practical book to help organisations cope and profit from the enormous changes that are redefining our world. This will appeal to a broad range of executive and professional readers.' - The Bookseller

"Fifteen years ago Frances Cairncross predicted the Death of Distance. In the age of social media we know that futurology with an accent on technology is a key for politicians, business people and all of us as citizens of this ever crowded planet. Singh has laid out a fascinating scenario which should make us think hard about the world our children are going to inherit." - Steve Norris Former British Minister and London Mayoral candidate
