In The Next 100 Years, Friedman turns his eye on the future. Drawing on a profound understanding of history and geopolitical patterns dating back to the Roman Empire, he shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, experiencing the dawn of a new historical cycle.

Engaging and intriguing

On the one hand George Friedman has written a form of science fiction. I'm not sure I'd make any investments based on his predictions. On the other, this book is a fascinating examination of how the most basic forces we often take for granted, demography and geography, play fundamental roles in the future of nations. In addition, his description of the United States "grand strategy" give interesting insights into current US policy. For example, if you accept that the US doesn't have to "win" in the conventional sense in Iraq, but that destabilizing the area yields the desired strategic goal, our current actions make much more sense. What he predicts might not come to pass, but "The Next 100 Years" provides a interesting view of the relentless forces that will affect the national policies of both our friends and foes.

Very Interesting and Easy to Listen To

I was curious about the topic but have been burned in the past with boring audiobooks that I just can listen to. This one is not like that at all. I was looking forward all day for my chance to pick up where I left off. If you like international relations or are curious about trends in the future. This book delivers. Great job to the author and the reader!

Everyone in America needs to read this

The macroscopic perspectives give you the ability to look past the overreactionary press and partisan politics. It may seem Amero-centric but the truth is that the world does revolve around the US. We have all the power and money so whatcha gonna do?
