Good read but outdated now.

Gebruikersrecensie  - marsattacks28 - Overstock.com

At the time the book came out it was very intriguing. Many of the predictions contained within came true faster than I couldve imagined. As a result the book is quite dated now. But still a great take on the interconnectedness of people and businesses on our planet. Volledige review lezen
