The Signals Are Talking reveals a systemic way of
evaluating new ideas bubbling up on the horizon-distinguishing
what is a real trend from the merely trendy. This book helps us
hear which signals are talking sense, and which are simply
nonsense, so that we might know today what
developments-especially those seemingly random ideas at the
fringe as they converge and begin to move toward the
mainstream-that have long-term consequence for tomorrow.
Most importantly, Webb persuasively shows that the future isn't
something that happens to us passively. Instead, she allows us
to see ahead so that we may forecast what's to come-challenging
us to create our own preferred futures.
