The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future
A New York Times BestsellerFrom one of our leading technology thinkers and writers, a guide through the twelve technological imperatives that will shape the next thirty years and transform our livesMuch of what will happen in the next thirty years is inevitable, driven by technological trends that are already in motion. In this fascinating, provocative new book, Kevin Kelly provides an optimistic road map for the future, showing how the coming changes in our lives—from virtual reality in the home to an on-demand economy to artificial intelligence embedded in everything we manufacture—can be understood as the result of a few long-term, accelerating forces. Kelly both describes these deep trends—interacting, cognifying, flowing, screening, accessing, sharing, filtering, remixing, tracking, and questioning—and demonstrates how they overlap and are codependent on one another. These larger forces will completely revolutionize the way we buy, work, learn, and communicate with each other. By understanding and embracing them, says Kelly, it will be easier for us to remain on top of the coming wave of changes and to arrange our day-to-day relationships with technology in ways that bring forth maximum benefits. Kelly’s bright, hopeful book will be indispensable to anyone who seeks guidance on where their business, industry, or life is heading—what to invent, where to work, in what to invest, how to better reach customers, and what to begin to put into place—as this new world emerges.From the Hardcover edition.

New Rules for the New Economy: 10 Radical Strategies for a Connected World
The classic book on business strategy in the new networked economy— from the author of the New York Times bestseller The InevitableForget supply and demand. Forget computers. The old rules are broken. Today, communication, not computation, drives change. We are rushing into a world where connectivity is everything, and where old business know-how means nothing. In this new economic order, success flows primarily from understanding networks, and networks have their own rules. In New Rules for the New Economy, Kelly presents ten fundamental principles of the connected economy that invert the traditional wisdom of the industrial world. Succinct and memorable, New Rules explains why these powerful laws are already hardwired into the new economy, and how they play out in all kinds of business—both low and high tech— all over the world. More than an overview of new economic principles, it prescribes clear and specific strategies for success in the network economy. For any worker, CEO, or middle manager, New Rules is the survival kit for the new economy.

What Technology Wants
From the author of the New York Times bestseller The Inevitable— a sweeping vision oftechnology as a living force that can expand our individual potential  This provocative book introduces a brand-new view of technology. It suggests that technology as a whole is not a jumble of wires and metal but a living, evolving organism that has its own unconscious needs and tendencies. Kevin Kelly looks out through the eyes of this global technological system to discover "what it wants." He uses vivid examples from the past to trace technology's long course and then follows a dozen trajectories of technology into the near future to project where technology is headed. This new theory of technology offers three practical lessons: By listening to what technology wants we can better prepare ourselves and our children for the inevitable technologies to come. By adopting the principles of pro-action and engagement, we can steer technologies into their best roles. And by aligning ourselves with the long-term imperatives of this near-living system, we can capture its full gifts. Written in intelligent and accessible language, this is a fascinating, innovative, and optimistic look at how humanity and technology join to produce increasing opportunities in the world and how technology can give our lives greater meaning.From the Hardcover edition.

The Industries of the Future
The New York Times bestseller, from leading innovation expert Alec Ross, a “fascinating vision” (Forbes) of what’s next for the world and how to navigate the changes the future will bring.While Alec Ross was working as Senior Advisor for Innovation to the Secretary of State, he traveled to forty-one countries, exploring the latest advances coming out of every continent. From startup hubs in Kenya to R&D labs in South Korea, Ross has seen what the future holds. In The Industries of the Future, Ross provides a “lucid and informed guide” (Financial Times) to the changes coming in the next ten years. He examines the fields that will most shape our economic future, including robotics and artificial intelligence, cybercrime and cybersecurity, the commercialization of genomics, the next step for big data, and the impact of digital technology on money and markets. In each of these realms, Ross addresses the toughest questions: How will we have to adapt to the changing nature of work? Is the prospect of cyberwar sparking the next arms race? How can the world’s rising nations hope to match Silicon Valley with their own innovation hotspots? And what can today’s parents do to prepare their children for tomorrow? Ross blends storytelling and economic analysis to show how sweeping global trends are affecting the ways we live. Sharing insights from global leaders—from the founders of Google and Twitter to defense experts like David Petraeus—Ross reveals the technologies and industries that will drive the next stage of globalization. The Industries of the Future is “a riveting and mind-bending book” (New York Journal of Books), a “must read” (Wendy Kopp, Founder of Teach for America) regardless of “whether you follow these fields closely or you still think of Honda as a car rather than a robotics company” (Forbes).

Inevitable: Mass Customized Learning
Meeting the individual learning needs of every learner, every hour, of every day although espoused by educators, has only been a impossible dream for educators facing student-teacher ratios of 25 to 1. But, alas, it is now a reality....a reality that is hiding in plain sight. Inevitable: Mass Customizing Learning (MCL) describes a detailed vision of how schools can change from the present outdated Industrial Age, assembly line structure to a mass customized learning structure with the capacity to meet the individual learning needs of every learner.....that's every learner, not some, not most, but every learner. iTunes,, Verizon, Wikipedia, and Google (to name a few) are doing it right now. They prove to us daily that mass customization is effective and efficient and...well...doable. Let's marry those powerful, customizing technologies with the power mission of educators to personalize learning. Everyone wins. The learner wins. And when the learner wins, so do educators, parents, society, and the economy. Inevitable provides a solid rationale for the structural change, identifies the proven technologies of today that make the vision doable, details the potential MCL has to motivate learners to high achievement, describes teacher roles that are highly professional, and outlines and concretely describes what school systems must do to make MCL a reality. The authors of Inevitable use a "weight bearing wall" metaphor to identify the Industrial Age walls (practices) that prevent us from meeting individual learner needs. Leaders are then shown how new customizing technology walls can replace those Industrial Age walls . . . and the roof will not fall in! Yes, leaders can operate a MCL system and still remain in control! The transformational change of MCL becomes clear, logical, and believable. Mass Customizing Learning is necessary and ..... well.... Inevitable . . . and this book describes how to do it.

Both Sides of the Line: The Coach and the Mob Enforcer, The Mentor and the Murderer: The True Story of Clyde Dempsey
We all come in shades of gray, always battling back the smoke and shadows, but what happens when the darkness takes over, when what is done cannot be undone?Kevin Kelly’s Both Sides of the Line tells the story of Jack Clyde Dempsey, football coach at a Catholic school in Boston—the man who forever changes the lives of countless young men. He brings unity and discipline and a seemingly magic mantra to a group of inner-city boys for whom football is a means to escape the many challenges faced at home. With charisma and unrelenting determination, Dempsey insists on quickness, technique, and desire―what he calls “the holy trinity” of being a good football player―and converts a group of non-winners into believers.He also makes them into teammates who support and believe in one another. And while his team, his football family, quickly comes to respect him for his unwavering belief in their potential, the truth is, the storied and mythic nature of Dempsey’s “dark side” has preceded him. While revered by the streetwise boys well before they ever lay eyes on him, Dempsey reveals an unapologetically street-tough temper, and his whispered-about dealings with the local mob are multiplied in the rumor mill of Don Bosco High. And when a teammate is paralyzed partly because of a Dempsey excess, linebacker Kevin Kelly begins to reconsider his faith in the game of football. And though Dempsey stays on as their coach, the ghostly memory of the crippled teammate lingers in the minds of teammates for decades. In the fall of 1974, with team morale at an all-time low, Dempsey’s relentless drive for perfection leads his undersized charges to a championship season—the first and only title Don Bosco’s football team will ever know while competing in the prestigious Catholic Conference. The crown becomes the motor for many a player’s self-esteem and confidence as well as for their college and career success. For Dempsey, however, it only becomes the towering peak from which he will spiral downward, crashing in a blast of violence that, one fateful night, wipes away the life of a young patron, Edward White, in a Boston bar. A football coach who preaches God, family, and country, and the need to live a clean, drug-free life, allows his penchant for drinking and cocaine to finally get the better of him.Fleeing the scene with a gun and soon a false identity, Dempsey reinvents himself as Ronald Mior in Ontario, Canada and remains on the run from the law for ten years, even reaching the top rungs of “America’s Most Wanted” list.This is the remarkable story of an unlikely team of winners from some of the roughest parts of Boston, and of the coach who both inspires and shapes them into believing in themselves, to achieve remarkable heights of lifetime success, as he himself self-destructs.This is Kevin Kelly’s memoir about Jack Dempsey, the man who played on both sides of the line.
