This "brilliant and provocative" (Walter Isaacson) guide shares nine principles to adapt and survive the technological changes shaping our future from the director of the MIT Media Lab and a veteran Wired journalist.

The world is more complex and volatile today than at any other time in our history. The tools of our modern existence are getting faster, cheaper, and smaller at an exponential rate, transforming every aspect of society, from business to culture and from the public sphere to our most private moments. The people who succeed will be the ones who learn to think differently.

In Whiplash, Joi Ito and Jeff Howe distill that logic into nine organizing principles for navigating and surviving this tumultuous period:

  • Emergence over Authority
  • Pull over Push
  • Compasses over Maps
  • Risk over Safety
  • Disobedience over Compliance
  • Practice over Theory
  • Diversity over Ability
  • Resilience over Strength
  • Systems over Objects
Filled with incredible case studies and cutting-edge research and philosophies from the MIT Media Lab and beyond, Whiplash will help you adapt and succeed in this unpredictable world.

With both steadiness and phrasing verve, he holds this book together, which is not easy when so much of the book’s ideological payload is delivered deep into the authors’ long-running, information-laden narratives.
