Summary

Summary

A Washington Post Bestseller

An Amazon Best Book of the Month for May 2016

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 to not 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Combines historic sweep and incisive detail…A powerful idea, backed by stories and figures that will be impossible to forget.” Walter Isaacson, # 1 New York Times bestselling author
“The next president needs to read The Seventh Sense…Ramo’s latest book is a fascinating guide to the way the world is changing.” Malcolm Gladwell, New York Times bestselling author
“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, New York Times bestselling author
"The Seventh Sense ultimately isn’t just about witnessing the power of human connections, but also harnessing that power to change the world. Highly recommended.” Midwest Book Review
“Ramo is sometimes vague but sometimes profound in a postmodern way that’s not the usual stuff of Washington think tanks…It all makes for provocative reading.” Kirkus Reviews
“The author’s easy authority about these transformative issues is as evident in his performance as it is in his prescient insights regarding how networks and machine intelligence will upend the world. The low-key seriousness in his reading works well with his arresting message…[and] he is utterly convincing.” AudioFile
