Entering the Shift Age

We now live in the Shift Age, a time of transformation that will be regarded by future historians as one of the most significant periods in human history. The Shift Age is one of those inflection points or times when much of humanity will change how we live, how we think, how we interact with each other and what we do.

Thank you for visiting this page about my latest book, "Entering the Shift Age". It is the best book I have written. It is the synthesis and culmination of the last five years since my first book "The Shift Age" was published. In that time I have delivered 400+ speeches on all six continents and in twelve countries, have had two other books published, have written a couple hundred columns for my blog and newsletters and have generally been accurate in the numerous forecasts I have made [soon to be available at this site as a separate page].

Humanity has left the Information Age and entered the Shift Age. We have entered perhaps the most transformative time in our history. The speed of change has accelerated so much that it is now become environmental, we live in an environment of change. It is a time of great stress between the legacy thinking of the past and the new emerging thinking and reality of the Shift Age.

I have written this book with the intention of providing a clarity for you the reader to understand the Three Forces of the Shift Age, the new contexts in which we find ourselves, the reasons for all the change you are now experiencing and finally a view into the future and what it is going to look like. Change is the only constant in the universe. Sometimes change can be upsetting or threatening. I hope this book will give you the deeper understanding and contextual view to become excited about the future and embrace it rather than fear it. In this time of anxiety my hope is that as many people as possible will read "Entering the Shift Age". I am excited that you might read it. Think of it as your road map to the future. Thank you!

Here is what will be on the dust cover of the book:

We now live in the Shift Age, a time of transformation that will be regarded by future historians as one of the most significant periods in human history. The Shift Age is one of those inflection points or times when much of humanity will change how we live, how we think, how we interact with each other and what we do.

The power of your individual influence and choice has never been greater.

You are at a pivotal point in human history, according to leading futurist David Houle. Thanks to the globalization of the economy, the force of the Internet, and the explosion of mobile communication, everything we know is undergoing dramatic change. Change, in fact, is no longer something to which you'll adapt, it's now the environment in which you live.

This will be one of the most transformative times in history. In the past, man-made developments like tools, machines, and technology defined an age. Today, Houle argues that our own power of conscious connection will fuel the speed of change so much that change itself will become the norm. In this eye-opening and thought-provoking book, Houle identifies and explains the key forces that have shaped our lives thus far—from business to technology to the environment—and how they will continue to affect your world for the next twenty years. Entering the Shift Age is your crucial roadmap to the future.
