Description

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 not to 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.

Commentaires

"Joshua Cooper Ramo has written a book that combines historic sweep and incisive detail. A great book, and a useful one. The Seventh Sense is a concept every businessman, diplomat, or student should aspire to master - a powerful idea, backed by stories and figures that will be impossible to forget." (Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and The Innovators)
"The next president needs to read The Seventh Sense, starting on the morning of November 9th. Joshua Ramo's latest book is a fascinating guide to the way the world is changing." (Malcolm Gladwell, author of David and Goliath)
"Joshua Cooper Ramo has a unique intelligence and a unique voice, which illuminate this fascinating book. The central new reality of the world we live in today is connectivity. People, computers, other machines, almost everything is getting linked and these new networks are spewing oceans of information. How should we navigate this brave new world? 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, author of In Defense of a Liberal Education)

Ridiculously Relevant

Simply put, "The Seventh Sense" is a book that provides insight into why the world feels as crazy as it does, today. The answer, at least according to the author, is based in the well argued theory that we are at the beginning of a societal change on par with that of the Industrial Revolution--a time in history when people felt much the same way.

If you are looking for a book that will hold your hand and tell you that the future of the world is going to be drop dead gorgeous, I think you are probably better off with a different book. If you are looking for a book that justifies your cynicism and provides you more ammunition for your opinions of doom and gloom, then you are, again, probably better off with a different book. Or maybe this book is EXACTLY for you, but just know that it's a very broad and very deep canvas that the author delves into--just be ready for some macro-level thinking. If you're not ready for that, I could see how this book might come across as too high in the clouds.

Overall, however, I personally found it extremely relevant, extremely well thought out, and I'd highly, highly recommend it. The actual quality of the narration is pretty well done, and it's the author, himself, speaking, which I always like to hear. He has a very good voice and an almost conversational style of speaking. I could see some people finding that a bit unprofessional, perhaps, but I found it really enjoyable.

There'll be quite a bit of work to be done on our part, but I do think that the future has quite a good chance of being extraordinarily fascinating, and nowhere near the apocalypse our Facebook news feeds would seem to suggest (looking at you, Drumpf).

Hope more people give it a try, because I think we could all really benefit from the perspective that books like these might provide us.

Irritating narration, vague writing

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Can be very thought provoking at times

If you’ve listened to books by Joshua Cooper Ramo before, how does this one compare?

I've seen him speak in person and he's much better in an hour long format.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joshua Cooper Ramo?

Normally, I like when an author reads their own work. Perhaps this was Ramo's first time? He.speaks.as.if.there.is.a.period.between.every.word and it is maddening. Like having a debate with Captain Kirk. His. narration. drove. me. nuts.

Could you see The Seventh Sense being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

Any additional comments?

Can be exceptionally thought provoking at times, but thoughts are only vaguely connected and can be lost in the long winded stories.

Boy, Ramo sure has read a lot of books...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. The book took a fairly simple observation or two and found a zillion examples to - kind of - support or illustrate it. I worked all the way through to the end, hoping that Ramo would come up with some brilliant, useful conclusion, but in the end it was like "So, be aware of this in your life..."

Has The Seventh Sense turned you off from other books in this genre?

If the genre is someone's capstone reading report, then yes, it has turned me off from the genre.

Thought Provoking

Ramo masterfully describes this network age, but falls short of providing any solutions or answers.

Enlightening, Informative, Revealing.

This is the most enlightening book I’ve read all year. It’s message is very well thought out, well presented and simple enough to be understood and acted on. My thanks to the author for sharing his brilliant insight into the subject matter of networks.

Good!

I started this book a while ago & stopped it, it's not a book to read/ listen to when you any time, this is very good book that needs to concentration, rich & long read but I enjoyed it , and somehow the author mange to link between the past & the future of the network, But the question is: How far away this future?

Eminently Sensible and Prophetic

This should be required reading for policy makers, business school professors, and any one interested in how networks will increasing shape our thinking, feeling, and acting.

Sehr interessant

Die Einsichten zur Entwicklung und Bedeutung von Netzwerk en aus diesem Buch sind hochgradig interessant. Es ist zum Ende hin etwas sehr auf die Rolle der USA zentriert und wird sehr philosophisch. Alles in allem aber sehr hörenswert!

a network of volcanoes

there should be some way of pointing to the text and highlighting it with a single touch or swipe. a gemeral issue for audiobooks.
