[Recorded: march 3, 2014] "At last, a brilliant guide book for the next century—what the future holds for entrepreneurs, revolutionaries, politicians, and ordinary citizens alike. Schmidt and Cohen offer a dazzling glimpse into how the new digital revolution is changing our lives. This book is the most insightful exploration of our future world I've ever read, and once I started reading I was simply unable to put it down." -Sir Richard Branson, founder and chairman, Virgin Group In an unparalleled collaboration, two leading global thinkers in technology and foreign affairs give us their widely anticipated, transformational vision of the future: a world where everyone is connected — a world full of challenges and benefits that are ours to meet and harness. Schmidt and Cohen traveled to more than 35 countries, including some of the world's most volatile and repressive societies, where they met with political leaders, entrepreneurs, and activists to learn firsthand about the challenges they face. They tackle some of the most interesting questions about our future: how will technology change privacy and security, war and intervention, diplomacy, revolution and terrorism? How will technology improve our lives? What new disruptions can we expect? Eric Schmidt is one of Silicon Valley's great leaders, having taken Google from a small startup to one of the world's most influential companies. Jared Cohen is the director of Google Ideas and a former adviser to Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton. The New Digital Age's release in paperback -- with a new afterward -- provided the spark for this program. We're very pleased to host the authors and to welcome Sheryl Sandberg back to our stage, this time as moderator. Please join us for a thoughtful and provocative conversation about the promise and perils of the digital revolution, with these outstanding speakers. Catalog Number: 102740112 Lot Number: X7183.2014
