In eighteen concise insights, he identifies the central issues of tomorrow and reveals some of their implications and possible consequences. What do we need to know and do about changes such as the shift from survival to identity, the change from verbal to visual communication, the declining birth rate, "the missing 700,000," the new immigration, the urban exodus, and the growing demand for participation?
