Dr. Nick Geidner discusses Whiplash: How to Survive Our Faster Future by Joi Ito and Jeff Howe, who lay out the unprecedented changes in a world that is more complex and volatile today than at any other time in our history.

The mind-blowing transformation in our modern existence to faster, cheaper, and smaller—combined with the immediate connectivity of billions of strangers—has created an unpredictable new world across business and culture, from the public sphere to our most private moments. The authors present nine organizing principles for navigating and surviving this tumultuous period in all facets of our lives and in our organizations.

Geidner said, "I have more ambivalence and cognitive dissonance about social media than anything else in the world." Find out why in this episode.
