Overview

As the Future Catches You: How Genomics & Other Forces Are Changing Your Life, Work, Health & Wealth by Juan Enriquez

If you think the world has changed dramatically in the last five years, you haven’t seen anything yet.

You will never look at the world in the same way after reading As the Future Catches You. Juan Enriquez puts you face to face with unprecedented political, ethical, economic, and financial issues, dramatically demonstrating the cascading impact of the genetic, digital, and knowledge revolutions on all our lives.

Genetics will be the dominant language of this century. Those who can “speak it” will acquire direct and deliberate control over all forms of life. But most countries and individuals remain illiterate in what is rapidly becoming the greatest single driver of the global economy. The choice is simple: Either learn to surf new and powerful waves of change—or get crushed trying to stop them. The future is catching us all. Let it catch you with your eyes wide open.

After reading this book, it is impossible to remain immobile regarding one's future, and the future of countries. This must read book is a motivator and a guide for students and adults. The Knowledge Revolution is exciting and scary. Juan Enriquez has found an incredible way to explain what is happening to us. He is the Dr. Phil of the Knowledge Revolution. The Future is Catching us all, and in sharing it, Enriquez is both intertaining and enlightening. The book pushes you to the edge of your seat, and has the rush of the fast and furious.
