Before the end

I had previously read the “Age of …” series by Eric Hobsbawm, and though I have a mixed personal opinion of him, I found his books insightful.

This book, written much after those sweeping overviews, captures some summaries and predictions made during the 90s.

Many of the takes are prescient, especially if you consider this is written before 9/11 and before smartphones and before the age of Google and the social media landscape of today.
