Book Description

The forces transforming tomorrow are profound, powerful and accelerating. The Internet, social networks, crowd-sourcing, gaming dynamics, new information and communication technologies, robotics, biotechnology and nanotechnology are all converging to transform everything from agriculture, energy, education and law enforcement to healthcare, manufacturing, retail and transportation.

In Foresight 20/20, professional futurists and business forecasters Jack Uldrich and Simon Anderson have developed eleven scenarios designed to aid the reader in understanding how a variety of technological trends are transforming the world of tomorrow. The trends are exciting and scary, positive or negative, prosaic and profound, and will impact both one’s personal or professional life. As Cervantes said centuries ago, “Forewarned, forearmed; to be prepared is half the victory.” Foresight 20/20 goes one step further and not only prepares the reader for victory but also instills in the reader the confidence necessary to create tomorrow’s victories.

Do NOT attempt to read this book if you do not want to rethink and rethink again your future and your perception of the future.
Be a student, factory worker, business person or a pregnant mother do read this and when done reading get busy working on your skills and your future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing sight into the future June 20, 2013

This is written in an interesting style. A combination between 1st and 3rd person. It seems that rather than telling a story, it was almost talking about the story. I found that a little disconcerting.

I do understand why though. This book is more about the technologies that will change every aspect of our lives. So it's not intended to be a SciFi novel, but rather almost a documentary.

Mostly I thought the technologies were a pretty realistic depiction of where we'll end up. I'll certainly be reading the book again in 2020, and recommend anyone in any walk of life read this to prepare themselves for the Technology Tsunami

I hope at least most of this comes true and our society can deal with the ethical questions that will surface. I really enjoyed the narrative style of writing. Recently heard Jack speak at a conference in Boston. He was very good. Recommend book for all
