"Rifkin connects the two defining technologies of the 21st Century -- the Internet and renewable energies -- giving us a powerful new economic vision for the future. As we look to regrow the economy, generate millions of jobs, and create a sustainable future for our children, the Third Industrial Revolution offers an indispensable roadmap." --Arianna Huffington, President and Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post Media Group

"Mr. Rifkin clearly outlines the challenges facing our global community, and creates a vision for business leaders, government and citizens." --John Chambers, Chairman and CEO of Cisco, Chairman and CEO of Cisco

Jeremy Rifkin's comprehensive Third Industrial Revolution vision, which is the centerpiece of Rome's long-term economic development plan, provides a blueprint for every city in the world to create a sustainable and prosperous society." --Gianni Alemanno, Mayor of Rome

"More than thought provoking... a call for action to policy makers and business leaders to embrace the opportunity of a society and economy driven by sustainable innovation and powered by renewable and distributed energy." --Rudy Provoost, CEO of Philips Lighting
