Summary

New York Times best-selling author and legendary investment guru Ric Edelman reveals his forward-thinking guide on how technology and science will reshape the way we save, invest, and plan for the future.

Technology and science are evolving at a blistering, almost incomprehensible pace.

The Human Genome Project took 11 years and $2.7 billion to complete. Today, it would take two days to finish and cost less than getting a pizza delivered.

It's estimated that 40 percent of the current Fortune 500 companies will no longer exist by 2025.

In 2005, half a billion devices were connected to the Internet. By 2030, that number will reach one trillion.

The traditional paradigms of how we live, learn, and invest are shifting under our feet. Ric Edelman has seen the future, and he explains how smart investors can adapt and thrive in today's changing marketplace. Using the same prophetic insight that has made him an iconic financial advisor, Edelman offers sound, practical investment advice through the lens of recent scientific and technological advancements. He illustrates how discoveries in robotics, nanotechnology, 3-D printing, solar energy, biotechnology, and medicine will redefine our life expectancies, careers, and retirements. As we live and work longer, Edelman provides clear advice on how to recalibrate the way we save for college, invest during our careers, and plan for retirement.

The Truth About Your Future, featuring Edelman's proven advice and trademark humor, is a timely, must-have guide for anyone serious about successfully adapting to the ever-evolving financial landscape.

Most interesting book I've read in years.

I have read Edelman's other books and found each one informative and helpful. His approach to money and wealth is balanced...he doesn't advocate that happiness is derived from wealth but he makes judgements on how to grow individual wealth. This book was a complete surprise to me. Over the course of my working career I have attended numerous seminars and retreats where futurists try to prepare companies and individuals for what is coming. Not an easy task. In this book Ric tackles the future in a way that is amazing, almost startling in scope and yet understandable. I give this book my highest recommendation and in fact have sent it to many of my contacts as a must read.

information on upcoming tech info but little finan

Any additional comments?

It was good information on upcoming technologies however I wanted a book on personal finance and that subject was only slightly touched on. Ric Edelman's other books are great though.

An insightful view into AI and our future...today

This book is worth the read because it hits on a lot of the technologies like (AI) artificial intelligence and process automation that people may still think are science fiction but are happening today.  What I like most is that it pulls all of the AI stories together in one concise theme that will give non technical readers a lot of awesome cooler conversations at work. There are not a lot of specifics on the financial side but enough to make you think. I noticed the new style of books are mainly marketing pieces used to build the brand and leave people on the hook to be reeled in as customers to their platform or business.  Although it has it's marketing sales pitches that hints at only his team understands this future,  (which I believe one should do in their book as long as it doesn't distract from the reason I bought it), it has enough information about the likely direction of the future of AI to be highly relevant.
