A forecast of the most important, game-changing trends—and how to manage and profit from them to improve your life.

We live in a time of complex and radical change. Those that are ill-prepared for the seismic shifts set to occur over the next thirty years will be in for a rough ride. From leading global futurist and advisor James Canton, the acclaimed author of The Extreme Future and Technofutures, comes Future Smart: the essential blueprint on what’s coming next. It details the key changes—in health and medicine, technology and communication, the global economy, the earth’s climate, energy, and business—that every person, company, and government must understand in order to not only adapt accordingly but thrive in the coming decades. Going beyond prediction, Canton shows listeners how to get “future-smart” with strategic steps they can take today to navigate tomorrow successfully.
