The Industries of the Future
By Alec Ross
"In a world growing more chaotic, Alec Ross is one of those very rare people who can see patterns in the chaos and guidance for the road forward. He has an unusual diversity of expertise that allows him to apply multiple lenses to the world's challenges and dream up the kind of innovative solutions that are changing the world."
-Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google and author of The New Digital Age
"Well worth reading.... Mr. Ross does a good job of describing the advantages and disadvantages of the third wave, which is just beginning."
"A rigorous and revealing exploration of the industries that will drive the next 20 years of change to our economies and societies."
-Blogging on Business
"A lucid and informed guide, even on the most technical issues."
"A fascinating vision of the future of industry. The Industries of the Future reads like a portable TED conference at which you have been seated next to the smartest guy in the room. The book is filled with glimpses of cutting-edge biotech research, statecraft, and entrepreneurship. Ross writes engagingly, and the book should be compelling whether you follow these fields closely or you still think of Honda as a car rather than a robotics company."
"This book is a must read for the rising generation and their concerned parents and educators. Alec Ross brings a far-reaching perspective to bear in illustrating the opportunities to be seized in our changing world across sectors and the globe and the kind of preparation that will be important to make the most of them."
-Wendy Kopp, Founder of Teach For America and CEO of Teach For All
