"The consequential age we are living in will be remembered as one of the great turning points in civilization. Once we turn, though, where will we be? That is the compelling question Al Gore sets out to answer by examining the drivers of global change, connecting the dots among the social, economic, and political forces shaping our present and future. A rising global consciousness is forcing people around the world, but especially Americans, to rethink their basic assumptions about how the world works, and, even more fundamentally, how it should and can work. Borders matter less than ever. Technology is constantly reordering the way we live, think, work, learn, love, pray, and play"-- Provided by publisher.

The only thing to disagree with about this book is the title. In fact the book is about the present, with major emphasis on the failings of the US political system. The subject of the future is left “as an exercise for the reader”, in fact “the future” are the last two words of the book.
As with most analyses of our current situation, the main obstacle to reading about it is the sense engendered by doing so of deep depression about our prospects. This should not prevent anyone from reading it, in fact it should preferably be mandatory, and not just for Americans, lest other countries slide into the same mess.
