This book was a very interesting look at what the future could be. While depressing in that the author forecasts another world war, it is hard to believe that the author could be accurate that far into the future. It's funny though. I have begun to look at the news differently looking for possible references to Mr. Friedman's predictions of which there have been a couple which makes this book fun and thought provoking.

The first few chapters were very interesting as the author built his case. The last half of the book, with the exception of the description of the next world war, were harder to get through. Not because it was hard to read. For some reason, the ability of the author to maintain an interesting narrative for the majority of the book was hampered by the number of generalities he was making.

Having said that, the author builds an interesting argument and provides commentary that, while maybe not accurate in the grand scheme of future history, certainly is compelling and fun to read.
