Product description

Review

“The acceleration and convergence of exponential technologies will completely reshape every industry and society over the next decade. The Future is Faster Than You Think is the first book to thoroughly map this new territory. A fantastic guidebook for leaders, entrepreneurs, CEOs, and anyone who wants to understand the massive changes ahead.”
—Ray Kurzweil, author of New York Times bestsellers The Singularity Is Near and How to Create a Mind

“Diamandis and Kotler have written a powerful and beautiful masterpiece outlining a compelling future for humanity. The Future is Faster Than You Think offers CEOs and entrepreneurs a clear vision on the transformation of every major industry this decade. Required reading for anyone who wants to surf above the tsunami of change.”
Tony Robbins, New York Times bestselling author, entrepreneur, philanthropist, life and business strategist

In their amazing book The Future Is Faster Than You Think, Diamandis and Kotler offer us a hopeful and powerful vision of the future. Packed with amazing stories, mindblowing technology and deep lessons about all of the extraordinary opportunities before us—a must read!
Anousheh Ansari, CEO of XPRIZE, and first private female astronaut

“Exponential technologies will transform every industry this decade. In this book, Diamandis and Kotler provide a deep and thorough researched view of the road ahead. Every entrepreneur and leader needs to understand the transformation and opportunities to plan and prepare. The future is faster than you think.”
—Pharrell Williams, Grammy Awardwinning musician and artist

"An enthusiastic look at the technologies of the future—which is just about now..... Diamandis and Kotler are cheerleaders for disruption, the scale and speed of which are increasing. But they're also realists, noting where there's more sizzle than steak even when they promise really cool things....Welcome reading for the futurists and technogeeks in the audience."
—Kirkus Reviews

"A gazillion books ponder the social and economic effects of disruptors like AI, virtual reality, 3-D printing, blockchain, robotics, and digital biology. What's intriguing about The Future Is Faster Than You Think is the speculation from Diamondis and Kotler about what happens when all that stuff starts coming together. The implication for extending lifetimes is especially intriguing."
Inc's “New Business Books You Need to Read in 2020”

"Heartiest congratulations to Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler on this third volume in the Exponential Mindset Series. It is a brilliant achievement, one that makes an exceptionally important contribution to thought leadership."
—Blogging on Business

"Where The Future Is Faster Than You Think excels, and what makes the book so enjoyable to read, is the infectious excitement that the authors bring to talking about new technologies."
—Inside Higher Ed

"For anyone remotely interested in what the future of technology holds, this book is for you. The authors present logical and well-thought-out arguments for technological advances in a variety of fields. Business leaders and entrepreneurs will want to keep this as a reference for ushering their companies to the future.”
—Book Pal, 2020 Outstanding Works of Literature (OWL) Award

5.0 out of 5 stars I See Unbounded Human Potential - “Future is Faster”
By Marie Johnson on 27 February 2020
Thrilled and honoured to be part of the “Future is Faster” Launch Team! This is a MUST read - and even for the well read! Awesome to see AI Assistants / Digital Assistants discussed in length. The work by people with disability on the AI digital human “Nadia” in 2016, the world’s first digital human for service delivery, is to be remembered as universal design now being globally adopted. Bravo Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler on a magnificent perspective on a future that is fast approaching. I see unbounded human potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars A roller coaster ride into the future of Tech. Hold on tight!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 December 2020
Loved the book which read like a feel good / optimistic and thrilling blockbuster movie. It moves at pace and makes a strong argument for how we will see more innovation and change in the next decade that in our parents and grand parents lifetime. The big idea of the book is that the law of accelerating returns will compound the transformation from convergence of a number of individual exponential technologies from hyper connected with 5g, ultra fast fixed to Cloud, AI, AR/VR and so much more.
If you are interested in the future of technology and the impact it will have on our world then I am sure you will enjoy it too.
