Editorial Reviews

Booknews
From the publisher of numerous imaginative books for computer users and explorers comes a work of a different sort. Petersen is a jack-of- many-trades and a futurist. He specializes in long-range thinking about national security and has founded an institute to advise policymakers, but his presentation of current and future economic and technological trends is not scholarly, nor is it cohesive, well- written, or particularly enlightening.
