I recently read The Age of the Unthinkable, by Joshua Cooper Ramo.
The book was recommended by a friend. The exact reason, I don’t know, but my sense is that he felt it would open my eyes and get me to think. He’s one of those friends who rarely gives me advice, and because I respect him so much, I never question the advice. I just follow it.
In his words, “[The book is] ostensibly about foreign policy, but that’s just to keep folks away. It’s really about the rules that govern everything we do in this new age.”
He was right. And if he wanted me to think, then he got that right as well.
In my opinion, this book is for anyone who is a revolutionary of sorts, a change agent, or is wondering what the future holds. It’s for people who think big, who consider context in everything they do, and love provocative ideas.
In other words, it’s perfect for visionary entrepreneurs.
