“Technology has transformed the tempo of change from nations to individual lives. Zoltán Cséfalvay does us a great service by connecting technology to both society and politics, and as such makes technology a central part of history, both in the past and going forward. His ability to align technology with a range of other human activities makes this an exceptionally important book.”
-- George Friedman, Chairman of Geopolitical Futures and author of the New York Times Bestseller: The Next 100 Years: A Forecast for the 21st Century
“An exuberant romp on the theme of technology, but with many excursions into history, politics, business, and culture. Don’t plan to read this book from start to finish--just dive in.”
-- Catherine L. Mann, Chief Economist of the OECD
"This is a truly comprehensive and sophisticated primer on the coming hybrid age of technological evolution and its worldwide impact, especially on the Millennial generation."
-- Parag Khanna, best-selling author of Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization
