Instaread Summary of The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future by Kevin Kelly
Two out of five stars
Given the title of the book being described, it is essential that any summary explain what those twelve technological forces are. In fact, it should be the lead. This one does not, which I consider a fatal flaw. At the end of the summary, I had no specific knowledge as to what those 12 technological forces are. There are only nine key takeaways, so the forces are not implied by the contents of that list.
However, there is enough in this summary to make the book sound extremely interesting. As a follower and a minor driver of advances in technology, I have read several books on the current trends and this one ranks in the higher tier of interest. There is a good chance that there was enough to push it into my “must read” category.
