Expand your enjoyment of literature with THE NEXT 100 YEARS by George Friedman (unabridged). This interactive mash-up experience contains a multitude of features and content to help take you beyond the words, by providing a 5-star professional reading, background extras, and more.NOTE: This app is fully accessible, and includes support for VoiceOver.The Next 100 Years, the most recent bestseller from George Friedman, reads like a disturbing mix of science fiction and weather forecast. Friedman, using techniques that have proven successful in his own company, has taken to predicting future events with surprising detail. Friedman unabashedly declares that the problem with most modern analysis is its lack of imagination. This leads to Friedmans informed, but in some cases, fantastic assertions. These assertions range from increasing United States dominance, an end to the U.S.-Islamic conflict, and the effective collapse of both China and Russia, to the rise of Poland, Japan and Turkey as new super powers and a third World War over the control of outer space. Of course Friedman is not completely inflexible, he knows that most of his predictions wont play out the way he claims, but the professional nature of his assertions and the facts he uses to back them up lend him a good deal of credence. However Friedmans many predictions pan out, he provides a fascinating interpretation of what we may have in store for us over the next century.Self-contained, this app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing.
