The Digital Age we live in is as transformative as the Industrial Revolution, and Joshua Cooper Ramo explains how to survive. If you find yourself longing for a disconnected world where information is not always at your fingertips, you may eventually be as useful as the carriage maker post–Henry Ford. It's practically impossible to know where the marriage of imagination and technology will take us (sorry Betamax and Kodak), and the only certainty is that in the networked world we will only become more intertwined. Is it possible to not become hopelessly tangled? Joshua Cooper Ramo, a policy expert who has advised the most powerful nations and corporations, says yes—if you are ready to ride the disruption. Drawing on examples from business, science, and politics, Ramo illuminates our transformative world. Start by imagining a near future when America's greatest power is not its military or its economy, but its control of the Internet.

Professional reviews

"The author's easy authority about these transformative issues is as evident in his performance as it is in his prescient insights regarding how networks and machine intelligence will upend the world. The low-key seriousness in his reading works well with his arresting message: Leaders will need radical sensitivity--a seventh sense--to deal with the intelligent networks of our age, networks that are "gifted with an exactness of vision" that is far more powerful than the strategies international players currently use to gain dominance in commercial, political, and social arenas. He is utterly convincing in asserting that global conflicts in the future will not be about trade, violent extremism, or environmental threats. These conflicts will involve fighting for control of how every institution and individual is connected to the rest of the world. T.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
