    Insightful thought provoking stuff. Only time will tell its accuracy but the reasoning and obvious apparent research appears sound. I just loved this book

    The cube idea remind me of a pair of dice (usually the fluffy-type) hanging on the rear-view mirror of some peoples' cars, as though they're the kind of tribe who prescribed to the philosophy that life is about a game of chance: one just got to rolls the dice and see what happens. I decorated mine with a cross that I bought in St. Paul Cathedral, London while I visited the place last year. Funny, how a little thing like that reveals one's personal statement of belief. I never heard of Patrick Dix The cube idea remind me of a pair of dice (usually the fluffy-type) hanging on the rear-view mirror of some peoples' cars, as though they're the kind of tribe who prescribed to the philosophy that life is about a game of chance: one just got to rolls the dice and see what happens. I decorated mine with a cross that I bought in St. Paul Cathedral, London while I visited the place last year. Funny, how a little thing like that reveals one's personal statement of belief. I never heard of Patrick Dixon and what he does until recently when my husband came home one day with two of his books and said I should read them while praising this unknown individual! This book has no particular appeal to me even though it has been sitting and staring at me at eye-level for months while I'm reading other books, but curiosity in me won the day as it always does. Oh wow, Dixon indeed epitomized the futurist among us and I wonder how he could sleep peacefully at night, knowing what he knew about the world's past, present and future! Would "ignorance is a bliss" be a better prescription for the faint-hearted? I'm between amused and terrified about the future particularly close to home of the possibility of me living close to 100 or perhaps well beyond 100. Goodness me! I'm not scared of dying but I'm not looking forward to live that long either; an ethical dilemma right there, folks! BTW, it's Hindi not Urdu that is spoken widely alongside English in India, it being India's national language (pg. 173) I'm surprised that Dixon didn't make any mention of the the rise of apostasy among Muslims either those living in developed and emerging nations and how this tribe movement impact the world: culturally, socially, spiritually and economically? Is it because it's so hard to quantify them? I'm curious what he got to say regarding this curious subject. Overall, it's a curious read and if I got it right "mood" is the mechanism that makes the world go around and around. The idea of how eight cubes affected each other does make sense but I won't go as far as bought one just to remind me the idea behind it. I'm tempted to list how to be "futurewise" but decided against it (pg. 316-317) Parting words from Dixon's as food for thought: You have choices every day. Do what you believe in and feel most passionate about. (pg. 317)

    The Future of Almost Everything is an inspiring and challenging book in equal measure. A highly recomended read for both business and community leaders alike. Patrick's 'six faces of the future' model is both enlightening and startling.

Patrick's ability throughout the book to bring home to a personal level the global situations he explores reminds the reader that we are all responsible for how the future will pan out and that we must not simply adopt an ostrich approach and except that global forces of change are beyond our control. The book promotes a truly aspirational world view that each of us has the power to create a future that we believe in and that can create a better world.

    Very scary, not in my opinion the things he says about the future, but what he tells us is happening now, and most of us only suspected it. Patrick really does make you think and I think he has some great answers. A book I think should be required reading.

    The book provided very rich aspects of what our future will look like up to 2050, the key idea is to look at future from 6 different outlook (the cube) which we have to keep in mind whenever we think on an event.
