Rolf Jensen has written a thoroughly absorbing book about the nature of change. Although it attempts to predict the future, it is not a trend book. Rather, it is an attempt to figure out how society will be organized. Jensen analyzes trends only in the context of determining whether they have a place in the new global business model called the dream society. Anyone with an interest in understanding the personal and business paths that will exist in the future will find this book valuable. Anyone actively engaged in a global business will find this book invaluable in charting 21st century inflection points. getAbstract recommends this book to all executives and managers doing business in the global economy.

- What the “dream society” is
- Why it is the natural successor to the information age
- Why the Internet will play a larger role in the development of the dream society.
