  • The world has fast entered a data and technology-driven era where new opportunities but also challenges are emerging. In this book, Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum contribute significantly to one of the most important issues of our time - how to move forward in the Fourth Industrial Revolution

  • It's no secret that technologies are reshaping the world's economies and societies. To manage the risks and spread the benefits, we have to act now, and in the interest of stakeholders everywhere

    Andrew McAfee, Co-Founder, MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA
  • Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution sheds light on what's at stake for society and how leaders can play a part in shaping the course of history. Klaus makes a powerful call in the book: "We have to shake things up before technological inertia determines our future for us." Act now.

    Zhu Min, Chairman, National Institute of Financial Research, People's Republic of China
  • The technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution are extraordinary. Leadership has to be equally extraordinary to manage the complexities of systemic change

    Eric Schmidt, Technical Advisor, Alphabet, USA
  • This book is essential for gaining a perspective on some of the critical challenges that rapid technological change poses to us all: ensuring the wellbeing of societies, understanding the evolving role of governments, and rethinking how the global economy will work in the 21st century

    Roberto Azevêdo, Director-General, World Trade Organization (WTO), Geneva
  • The World Economic Forum shows us that improving the state of the world will mean seriously thinking about, and empowering, all of those whose lives are transformed by technologies

    Peter Maurer, President, International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Geneva
  • Prosperity with technology means defending the rights of women on the frontline of change, defending the dignity of work for all workers and improving working conditions around the world. A Fourth Industrial Revolution that can do that would benefit us all

    Sharan Burrow, General Secretary, International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), Brussels
  • The Fourth Industrial Revolution is being felt profoundly around the world. Chapter by chapter, special insights from some of the best minds from the World Economic Forum's community show just where leadership focus is needed

    Luis Alberto Moreno, President, Inter-American Development Bank, Washington DC
  • The title says it all. Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution emphasizes the modern imperative to shape a development model that dramatically reduces our current unsustainable footprint on the planet, as a critical foundation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution to succeed. Or there won't be a fifth

    Marco Lambertini, Director-General, WWF International, Switzerland
  • The challenge is clear: if we want to create technologies which benefit us all, and help us create more just and inclusive societies, we need to ensure that the values of human dignity and equality become a core design and use principle

    Shalil Shetty, Secretary-General, Amnesty International, United Kingdom
