THE THIRD INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION How Lateral Power Is Transforming Energy, the Economy, and the World

by | Read by Kevin Foley

Contemporary Culture • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

This is the latest in a long line of stimulating treatises from one of the most energetic scientific futurists of our time. Rifkin lays out his vision for the next industrial revolution (our third), to be built around green-power generation and the Internet. Kevin Foley’s classroom-lecture style works with this visionary text on the planet’s future. But the often dry nature of the book is only marginally invigorated by his plodding pace. This is the kind of work that would have benefited from a more active vocal delivery. So while the narrator’s enunciation is clear, the author’s passion sounds muted.
