40 years later it is still a reference, recommended by famed Silicon Valley entrepreneur Peter Thiel, the president of the World Economic Forum, Professor Klaus Schwab, and by Nobel Prize Paul Krugman (author of the electronic edition preface) among others. This is an important book that helps us today to understand how we missed what were our desired goals back in the 1960s for our civilisation into the 21st century.
Here is what Peter Thiel has to say about The American Challenge (MarketWatch, Oct. 6th 2014): "The book got a lot things right, but certainly there were things that didn't quite happen, and you always have to ask yourselves why they didn't," said Thiel. "This whole category of past books about the future is a very interesting one, and that is one that I always recommend very strongly."
