This audio was clean, and clear. It's all in the title. The author describes what he thinks tomorrow will look like and then explain how one would navigate a successful life. Of course this is all based on if you believe he is correct in his assumption of where society is headed.

Managing in the new society is a forward thinking book explaining the current business environment and where it is going. A good explanation of the change from our current work force to a new better trained worker and what it takes to keep them.
