The Future is Faster Than You Think is a dizzying, yet ultimately hopeful, tour de force of what is already possible with technology, and what is on and over the horizon.
Peter and Steven do an admirable job of not only curating the vast field of emerging technologies, but also in showing how these technologies are converging with one another to create novel and accelerated offerings.
With converging technologies in every area of human life, from agriculture, to transportation, to healthcare, to you-name-it, the future is not only going to be faster than you think, it is going to be better than you think.
In the first part, they examine the forces of acceleration and describe how converging technologies are creating an environment of unprecedented change. In part two, they provide a wealth of material covering multiple industries, showing how these technologies will impact our daily lives over the next ten years. In the final section, they expand their time-horizon to the next one hundred years and describe the environmental, economic and existential risks that threaten the progress made to date.
A highly-engaging, mind-blowing, can’t-put-it-down read. The practical take-aways from this book are invaluable. Essential reading for anyone interested in technology, disruption and and innovative thinking. Add this to your reading list now
Regardless if you agree with the book’s analysis, I think this is an important book to add to your reading list. It will challenge your perceptions of what’s possible, it’ll stretch your imagination, and it just might inspire you - like it has me - to think bigger than you ever have before.
Thank you Peter and Steven, once again you have made my life better.
I know I'm not doing justice to the book by writing a short review so my apologies to the authors, both of which I hold in high regard.
If you want to know what is coming (sooner than you think or anticipate) read this book to get not only how but also why this is possible now, and wasn't available / possible earlier.

Für mich als Produktmanager eine große Hilfe, um up-to-date zu bleiben und in die Zukunft zu denken.
Donnie is at the circus when shockingly an African lion attacks a young girl. He runs up and punches the lion right in the nose. A reporter says “Truly you are magnificent, that's most heroic thing I’ve ever seen”
Donnie replies “I just did what I thought was right, god protects me”
Oh you’re a Christian
Yes I teach bible class
The journalist says “I want everyone to know what you did here today. It’s a great story”
The next day front page headline…
“Right wing Christian fundamentalist assaults African Immigrant and steals his lunch￼”
