The third wave is a classic study of tomorrow. Sweeping across history and future, it reveals the hidden connections among today's changes--in business, family life, technology, markets, politics, and personal life.

The book paints a stunning, comprehensive picture of the twenty-first century civilization springing up around the globe.
