Summary
What will the next ten years look like? Trend-spotter Jane Buckingham spends her days looking for the telling details in today's culture that give clues about what our future holds. This book is the result of her conversations with dozens of fascinating people in a wide range of industries, all giving their highly individual perspectives on the world as they know it. From education to the environment, from robotics to drug policy, with an emphasis on up-and-coming industries and news-making topics, some of the most compelling and timely matters of our era are addressed by dozens of contributors. The book also shows how these leaders work, what they believe will be important, and what they think is not worth our time. In a world that seems to be changing faster than ever, it offers insights into how we can keep up--and stay ahead.--From publisher description
