Overview

Not since the twin hammers of the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution battered apart the foundations of old Europe has the world faced a shift as elemental, as epochal as what confronts us now. From Facebook to hacking attacks to ISIS, powerful network forces we barely understand are ripping through our connected world, tearing at our most fundamental ideas. What institution do you trust more today than you did ten years ago? Exactly. In this groundbreaking new book, Joshua Cooper Ramo explains a powerful new instinct that we need to understand if we want to see everything from the opportunities for fortune in our age to the most virulent dangers. Animated with experiences studying with Chinese Zen masters and advising generals and CEOs, The Seventh Sense will forever alter the way you look at our the world we now live in.

Reviews

In this hyper networked world remade fresh every day, with new perils and new opportunities, there is one book to be sure to read: Joshua Ramo's new book, a masterpiece, The Seventh Sense. To understand the tsunami of the networked age, you need history, biography, tech, philosophy, politics--and you want a book that has a depth beyond whatever else you could be streaming, podcasting, or wiki-ing. This is that book. --Reid Hoffman, Chairman/Founder of LinkedIn and Partner at Greylock


Full of engaging vignettes. . . [Ramo] uses his anecdotes to make some sharp observations. -- The Economist


Sparkles with insight and imagination. You'll learn more about foreign policy from this text than you would in most university courses. Seamlessly fuses the bird's-eye and worm's-eye views to render a compelling picture of global security threats. Christian Sciene Monitor


A great read, a wondrous and unexpected journey through a world that keeps getting more complicated. Joshua Cooper Ramo has a brilliant mind and a beautiful pen, and both are evident in this stimulating book. -- Fareed Zakaria, author of The Post-American World The formula on display here - reported vignettes, grand theorizing, surprising juxtapositions - will be familiar to readers of Thomas L. Friedman and Malcolm Gladwell, and Ramo executes it with verve. -- Gary Rosen, New York Times Book Review [A] call to arms for smarter management of this increasingly complex world. -- Newsweek Poignant, informed and optimistic. -- Forbes Full of engaging vignettes. . . [Ramo] uses his anecdotes to make some sharp observations. -- The Economist Former foreign editor of Time, Ramo pushes the reader into uncomfortable yet exhilarating places with controversial ways of thinking about global challenges...Persuasively argued...[Ramo's] revelatory work argues that there must be some audacity in thinking before there can be any audacity of hope. Publishers Weekly (starred review) [Ramo's] provocative new book...does a nimble job of showing how such theories shed light on the current political and economic climate while avoiding the worst pitfalls...[he] has managed, in this stimulating volume, to make the reader seriously contemplate the alarming nature of a rapidly changing world. Michiko Kukatani, The New York Times Thought-provoking...highly recommended for anyone who runs a business, is involved in international relations, or cares about our collective future. Boston Globe One can hope that Ramo's book may be one of the grains of sand that causes that much-needed avalanche. San Francisco Chronicle Sparkles with insight and imagination. You'll learn more about foreign policy from this text than you would in most university courses. Seamlessly fuses the bird's-eye and worm's-eye views to render a compelling picture of global security threats. Christian Sciene Monitor The Seventh Sense ultimately isn't just about witnessing the power of human connections, but also harnessing that power to change the world. Highly recommended. Midwest Book Review This book paints an accurate and timely picture of the world we live in and how it is changing. --Mareo McCracken, Inc. Praise for The Seventh Sense A fascinating guide to the way the world is changing. --Malcolm Gladwell, author of David and Goliath This book is the best yet on reviewing the ever more tightly woven, connected, pervasive networks - accelerating due to their interactivity - that now dominate our globalized human societies.... Ramo surveys this new world of interconnected networks in penetrating detail with deep knowledge of current global geopolitics and human history. --Hazel Henderson, Seeking Alpha Provocative reading... [Ramo] offers plenty of interesting scenarios for such things as global power shifts, AI-enabled weapons systems, and the like.... For policy wonks with an eye toward the middle term, Ramo provides a good effort to make sense of it all. --Kirkus Reviews The Seventh Sense ultimately isn't just about witnessing the power of human connections, but also harnessing that power to change the world. Highly recommended. --Midwest Book Review In this hyper networked world remade fresh every day, with new perils and new opportunities, there is one book to be sure to read: Joshua Ramo's new book, a masterpiece, The Seventh Sense. To understand the tsunami of the networked age, you need history, biography, tech, philosophy, politics--and you want a book that has a depth beyond whatever else you could be streaming, podcasting, or wiki-ing. This is that book. --Reid Hoffman, Chairman/Founder of LinkedIn and Partner at Greylock Joshua Cooper Ramo has a unique intelligence and a unique voice, which illuminate this fascinating book. The central new reality of the world we live in today is connectivity. People, computers, other machines, almost everything is getting linked and these new networks are spewing oceans of information. How should we navigate this brave new world? Ramo writes with ease and authority about the technology, history, and foreign policy of this power shift, giving us an essential guide for the future. --Fareed Zakaria, author of In Defense of a Liberal Education If this book were read and understood by our next president, America would be a stronger country and the president would have an agenda for global leadership. Ramo's fascinating work serves a critical public purpose. --Bill Bradley Joshua Cooper Ramo has written a book that combines historic sweep and incisive detail. A great book, and a useful one. The Seventh Sense is a concept every businessman, diplomat, or student should aspire to master -- a powerful idea, backed by stories and figures that will be impossible to forget. --Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and The Innovators Praise for The Seventh Sense The next president needs to read The Seventh Sense, starting on the morning of November 9th. Joshua Ramo's latest book is a fascinating guide to the way the world is changing. Malcolm Gladwell, author of David and Goliath Praise for The Age of the Unthinkable The formula on display here - reported vignettes, grand theorizing, surprising juxtapositions - will be familiar to readers of Thomas L. Friedman and Malcolm Gladwell, and Ramo executes it with verve.

Ramo surveys this new world of interconnected networks in penetrating detail with deep knowledge of current global geopolitics and human history. Hazel Henderson, Seeking Alpha
