#1 WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER & WINNER OF 20 INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS
The highly anticipated 10th edition of the groundbreaking innovation book Non-Obvious - featuring ten all new trend predictions for winning the future.
Introducing a book about what it really takes to predict the future, by getting better at understanding the accelerating present.
What can the quirky rules of Icelandic hot tub etiquette and the unexpected celebrity of a Michelin-ranked food stall in Singapore teach you about the future of business and culture?
The answer may not be all that obvious, and that's exactly the point.
For the past decade, innovation expert and marketing professor Rohit Bhargava and his intrepid team of trend curators have produced one of the most widely read annual trend forecasts in the world: the Non-Obvious Trend Report.
Whether you are among one of the more than 1 million readers of a previous edition of this report or not, this completely updated new edition features an unprecedented look behind the scenes at the author's award-winning "Haystack Method" for identifying the ideas and insights others miss by learning to collect ideas the way most people collect frequent flier miles.
You don't need to be a futurist or innovation expert in order to learn to think like one. In this book you'll not only learn how to use the Haystack Method yourself, but also read insights about how to leverage the ten forecasted megatrends to grow your own business or propel your career.
The key to winning the future lies in better understanding the present. This book is an essential guide to becoming a non-obvious thinker and using the art of trend curation to get better at predicting what will be important tomorrow based on learning to better observe patterns in the world today.
