Began reading but found it too tediously lightweight, so ended up just skimming it. The author, George Friedman, founded that godawful private intel contracting ripoff, Stratfor, which was hacked by anonymous [Jeremy Hammond], exposing the crimes they were involved with, by the fellow who hacked it and exposed said crimes, went to jail, while nothing ever happened to the bogus scammers named Friedman and the former Montomgery County cop, Fred Burton [who seriously believes Lee Oswald murdered JFK?!?!? - - Mental Category 4 type]

I found this book after reading The Next Decade, by the same author. My first introduction to a geopolitical view of the world, history over the past several centuries and the near to medium term future. The analysis is insightful and thorough, and I look forward to reading his other books, and watching the future unfold. As the author admits, he won't get to see much of the century ahead and that he writes for his children and grandchildren. Maybe if more of the world's leaders read these works, the world may be able to avoid some of the more distressing events the author foretells. We should encourage our adult children to read this.
