Authors Theo Priestley and Bronwyn Williams have brought together the world's leading futurists to articulate and clarify the current trajectories in technology, economics, politics, and business.

This is a comprehensive history of tomorrow, exploring groundbreaking topics such as AI, privacy, education, and the future of work. While the guidance, insight, and predictions are fascinating for anyone curious about what the future may hold, the book also functions as an invaluable guide for business professionals looking to steer their career or their organization with foresight and confidence.
