Mycket fakta men tolkade ur ensidig amerikansk synvinkel. Svårläst på grund av att fakta inte strukturerats bättre. Att frälsningen skulle bestå av internet kan jag inte tro.

Recensioner i media
"If you are concerned about the massive changes the world is just heading into, then you should read this book. If you aren't, then you must read it." * Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web * "This is a great book. From political policy and economics to science and the most thorny ethical issues, Al Gore has stated the human condition forthrightly, fearlessly, and in easily understood language. And said what must be done. I asked myself halfway through who else could have written a book of this magnitude. The only answer I could imagine was Jefferson." * E.O. Wilson, Harvard University, two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize * "I'm a pro-growth supply-side economist, so my admiration for Al Gore may seem like an oxymoron. It's not. This book is amazingly rich in wisdom, practicality, and insight. Al Gore has a portfolio that warrants credibility and is an accomplished polymath who transcends ideology while turning our attention to big issues, big ideas, and big solutions. The Future frames the discussion whether you're conservative, agnostic, or liberal. It's a fascinating deep read." * Arthur B. Laffer, Ph.D. * "Applying a formidable mix of history, science and common experience, Gore has produced a luminously intelligent analysis that is packed with arresting ideas and facts. ... Summarising this rich and ambitious book in any detail is impossible. You simply have no alternative to reading it." * The Guardian * "Even these devotees of the long view will have much to learn from Gore's book, a tour de force that no government can afford to ignore." * The Guardian *
