  • One part encyclopedia, one part text, one part self-help, one part editorial, and one part call to action. The field of foresight seems much bigger now than it did before reading this, and my professional reading list is now on a super-exponential curve!

  • A marvelous compendium of knowledge. At a time when the future itself is in doubt, this Guide should prove a boon to policy-makers in business and government, teachers and students of all ages, and everybody really, as the need is universal. Read this book because it is important, but also because it offers a delightful wealth of fascinating ideas.
