The Next 100 Years by George Friedman Book Summary

“Conventional analysis suffers from a profound failure of imagination. It imagines passing clouds to be permanent and is blind to powerful, long-term shifts taking place in full view of the world.” —George Friedman

In his long-awaited and provocative new book, George Friedman turns his eye on the future—offering a lucid, highly readable forecast of the changes we can expect around the world during the twenty-first century. He explains where and why future wars will erupt (and how they will be fought), which nations will gain and lose economic and political power, and how new technologies and cultural trends will alter the way we live in the new century.
The Next 100 Years draws on a fascinating exploration of history and geopolitical patterns dating back hundreds of years. Friedman shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, at the dawn of a new era—with changes in store, including:

• The U.S.-Jihadist war will conclude—replaced by a second full-blown cold war with Russia.
• China will undergo a major extended internal crisis, and Mexico will emerge as an important world power.
• A new global war will unfold toward the middle of the century between the United States and an unexpected coalition from Eastern Europe, Eurasia, and the Far East; but armies will be much smaller and wars will be less deadly.
• Technology will focus on space—both for major military uses and for a dramatic new energy resource that will have radical environmental implications.
• The United States will experience a Golden Age in the second half of the century.

Written with the keen insight and thoughtful analysis that has made George Friedman a renowned expert in geopolitics and forecasting, The Next 100 Years presents a fascinating picture of what lies ahead.

One more fatal flaw. I loved reading this book, but I thought the author ignored one major player, THE EUROPEAN UNION! A united Europe can and is challenging the United States. To completely blow over this fact is something which having a MA in Political Science, I believe devalues the forecasting which is otherwise beautifully done.

Excellent Insights. The book is a well thought out and plausible scenario about the coming years. The author explains his method and maintains that based on this method conclusions can be drawn. His premise is that leaders of nations often only have but a few realistic options when facing decisions. I have observed this to be true also both in the US and abroad. I think the read is very interesting perspective and will cause an engaged reader to think. It is not for a casual reader. I really like books that offer fresh perspectives and cause me to challenge myself to understand issues. This one certainly hits that mark for me. I highly recommend it.

Fun read.... Fun read. The only issue I had was the future intentions of Japan. After living in and around Japanese culture for the last decade, I can almost see no scenario in which Japan would even attempt to make an attempt for war against USA. Would recommend.

Reminds Me of the Board Game Risk Too Much. The author has some good insights into geopolitics but a superficial understanding of everything else from culture to technology. The result is a ton of guessing which reads like the out takes of children playing the board game risk. So while there are some interesting ideas by the middle of the book you feel like the author is playing spin the wheel with each chapter. I have rarely quit a book in the middle but this book earned that honor.

Edutainment. I bought the audiobook and listened to it 3 times so far. It's a refreshing perspective on politics, and a fascinating narrative on the interests of nations. Worth a read.

Fascinating and plausible!. This is the best political/futurist book I've read. George, self admittedly, might not get all the details right, however his predictions are all plausible. If you are interested in geopolitics this is a must read? Also there are "battlestars" in the book!!!
