Join former vice president and #1 New York Times
bestselling author Al Gore
as he discusses The Future
($28.00). Ours is a time of revolutionary change that has no precedent in history. With the same passion he brought to the challenge of climate change, and with his decades of experience on the front lines of global policy, Al Gore surveys our planet’s beclouded horizon and offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast in the visionary tradition of Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock
and John Naisbitt’s Megatrends
. In The Future
, Gore identifies six critical drivers of global change.
As absorbing as it is visionary, this work is a map of the world to come, from a man who has looked ahead before and been proven all too right.
