Joshua Cooper Ramo and Malcolm Gladwell in conversation about The Seventh Sense: Power, Fortune, and Survival in the Age of Networks by Joshua Cooper Ramo

The Seventh Sense is the story of the instinct that gives us a new way of seeing our connected age, and makes our era survivable. It shows how the choices we must make - even on this next election - will decide if we thrive or not. The Seventh Sense won't merely change the way you see the world; it will also give you the power to change it.

Joshua Cooper Ramo is the author of the international bestseller The Age of the Unthinkable: Why the New World Disorder Constantly Surprises Us and What We Can Do About It (Little, Brown & Company, 2009). He is co-chief executive officer and vice chairman of Kissinger Associates. Trained as an economist, he holds degrees from the University of Chicago and New York University.

Malcolm Gladwell has been a staff writer with The New Yorker magazine since 1996. He is the NTY bestselling author of four books (all published by Little, Brown): The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference; Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking; Outliers: The Story of Success; and What the Dog Saw.

The event is free and open to the public. Space is limited. Seating is on a first come basis.
