Summary In his Megatrends books, Naisbitt proved himself a far-sighted observer of our fast-changing world. This book discloses his secret of forecasting, opening the door to the insights that let him understand today's world and see the opportunities of tomorrow. He selects his most effective tools and applies them by guiding the reader through the five forces that will dominate the next decades of the twenty-first century.--From publisher description.
