Not only does the book speak to many sectors in meaningful ways, offering us thoughts about their emerging dynamics, but it also concludes each thought experiment with a clear description, or "how to," for a practical path forward.
Consequently the title is apropros. You get a thoughtful look at a future that doesn't exist yet, and a concise articulation of how to prepare for it anyway.
