In a rapidly changing world, where the collapse of humanity feels like a news cycle away, how will our species possibly survive? Take heart and witness communities creating the future in this bold and hilarious travelogue from the bestselling author of The Sex Lives of Cannibals. One day, J. Maarten Troost looked up from the book he was reading, a novel about civilization’s collapse. Here’s what he saw: his wife composing a report on the dire future of global fish stocks, his youngest child building a battle robot called the Terminator, and his oldest watching a movie about children in a post-apocalyptic world. He took this moment in (really, imagine it, a charming family, dad-wife-two-kids, and they’re all thinking about the disastrous future), and he wondered: when did our conceptions of the future—in pop culture, in science, in business—become so bleak? Even more, are our fears founded? A lifelong traveler, he decided to head off to several ends of the earth (of course) to investigate how different societies today might reveal the future to us, or more specifically, how they might answer the question: what will the world look like in 2050? In South Korea, he navigated the future of cities and of artificial intelligence. In Denmark, he tasted the future of food. In Japan, he marveled at youth in an aging population. And in South Africa, he witnessed the struggle between our noble efforts at conservation and our continued corruption. What he found in each of these four countries surprised and, even more, enlightened him. Apparently, the hipster of tomorrow will be a forest ranger, and the insect-based diet will prevail. (Hear that, cockroaches? We’re coming for you.) With his characteristic wit and charming irreverence, Troost brilliantly reimagines the travel narrative in this hilarious and game-changing book—traveling not just to an existing place at a particular moment, but to the unforeseeable future, and inviting us all to travel with him. Pack light. Be prepared.

To make real money in the stock market you have to act like a sleuth. It's not enough to rely on SEC files, annual reports, and press releases. To uncover the most lucrative investments, you must dig beneath the printed surface of public information and sleuth for physical evidence. This is the only way to reveal the actual truth about a company's real value-and its future. Investing expert Avner Mandelman honed this highly effective, money-sleuthing approach at his investment firm, Giraffe Capital Corporation. Now, in The Sleuth Investor, he shares his proven intelligence-gathering methods for obtaining exclusive information even before industry insiders do-and using it to gain a decisive edge in buying and selling stock. Through step-by-step guidance and illustrative examples, Mandelman demonstrates how you can track the four physical elements of a company: People (employees, customers, suppliers), Product (inventory, the product's physical movement, competing products), Plant (production facilities, offices), and Periphery (physical surroundings, community, the economic eco-chain). Obtaining physical clues gives you the ability to anticipate key company developments, such as imminent high growth, a coming disaster you can short profitably, and new product launches. Using Mandelman's strategies and techniques, you'll learn how to: Follow the physical movement of a product, either directly or indirectly, and connect it to financial results Obtain exclusive information from low-level employees to make nearly sure bets Collect information from a company's clients and suppliers-and use it to make lucrative investments Integrate legal precautions into your sleuthing The amount of “foolish” money available to be taken by money sleuthing is enormous. Become a sleuth yourself by following the methods in The Sleuth Investor and you'll be making more money than ever before-perhaps even a fortune.
