"Lots of folks talk about the future. Dr. James Canton's The Extreme Future takes you there, outlining in vivid detail the top trends transforming society and the marketplace. This book is visually stunning and beautifully organized. If you care about the future--and who can afford not to?--this book is for you."--Patricia Aburdene, author of Megatrends 2010: The Rise of Conscious Capitalism

"Dr. Canton's account of the future of healthcare is chilling... not because his vision is fearsome, but because his predictions are fast becoming fact."--Terry Fassburg, Vice President, Brand Communications, Philips Electronics

"This book is your essential guide to the future. It is an insightful, straightforward, clear view into the amazing and surprising future that is closing in on us fast. It is essential reading to understand the revolutionary impact on business and beyond."--Toby Redshaw, Corporate Vice President, I.D.E.A.S., Motorola

"Canton's optimistic prescription for a successful global future comes as a refreshing change from the often dismal reports alive in the world. Canton's intelligence, wit, and passion readily found in the numerous talks he gives worldwide comes through in his prose."--Barbara A. Propes, President, World Affairs Councils of America

"Canton does a great job identifying the top trends that will shape our future. If you want to prepare for the Extreme Future, read this book."--Rudy Burger, CEO & Chairman, U.S. Development Partners

"Canton's background in future-planning consultancy began when he studied under Alvin Toffler in the 1970s--and it shows in this big-picture take on the world of tomorrow. Taken individually, none of the trends Canton believes will shape the upcoming decades are surprising: major crises brought on by energy shortages and climate change; economic transformation wrought by globalization; and the 'war on terror' has barely started. But he recognizes that the future is created by a 'convergence' in which these developments interact... His lively scenarios are designed to spark debates, and they surely will."--Publishers Weekly

"A forecasting road map for the twenty-first century that includes 10 top trends of the extreme future. These trends are the critical role of energy; information technology and networks; biotechnology; the manipulation of matter at the atomic scale (producing new drugs, fuels, materials, and machines); and the use of devices, drugs, and materials to heal and enhance mental performance... Canton is optimistic about the future and believes Americans in general are, too... Important and fascinating perspective!"--Booklist
