Reid Hoffman's Review:

How do we navigate and thrive in the face of the massive changes that are coming our way? That's the subject of innovation expert Alec Ross's instructive new book, The Industries of the Future.

Ross describes a world in which technologies like those described above are defining the way we live. Specifically, he identifies cloud robotics, the commercialization of genomics, digitized money, cybersecurity, and the data-ification of everything as the significant factors that will drive change over coming decades.

Reid Hoffman's Review:

From now until May 31, anyone can submit a nominee for the prize. Once the nomination period closes, the Berggruen Prize Jury will make a final selection and announce a winner in October.

I'm nominating Robert Wright. For nearly three decades, in books like The Moral AnimalNonzero, and The Evolution of God, Wright has been contemplating what he calls the "logic to human destiny."

Zero to One
book
by Peter Thiel , Blake Masters

Reid Hoffman's Review:

In his book Zero to One, my friend and former colleague Peter Thiel lays out an ingenious, provocative, and highly entertaining argument regarding the virtues of monopoly and the shortcomings of competition. He makes his case so deftly that I suspect it will soon attain the implacable majesty of conventional wisdom. That would be a shame.
