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 not to 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.



"Joshua Cooper Ramo has written a book that combines historic sweep and incisive detail. A great book, and a useful one. The Seventh Sense is a concept every businessman, diplomat, or student should aspire to master - a powerful idea, backed by stories and figures that will be impossible to forget." (Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and The Innovators)
"The next president needs to read The Seventh Sense, starting on the morning of November 9th. Joshua Ramo's latest book is a fascinating guide to the way the world is changing." (Malcolm Gladwell, author of David and Goliath)
"Joshua Cooper Ramo has a unique intelligence and a unique voice, which illuminate this fascinating book. The central new reality of the world we live in today is connectivity. People, computers, other machines, almost everything is getting linked and these new networks are spewing oceans of information. How should we navigate this brave new world? Ramo writes with ease and authority about the technology, history, and foreign policy of this power shift, giving us an essential guide for the future." (Fareed Zakaria, author of In Defense of a Liberal Education)

Sehr interessant

Die Einsichten zur Entwicklung und Bedeutung von Netzwerk en aus diesem Buch sind hochgradig interessant. Es ist zum Ende hin etwas sehr auf die Rolle der USA zentriert und wird sehr philosophisch. Alles in allem aber sehr hörenswert!
