About Fredrik's book - The developing world
In a world that is changing at a swift and furious pace, traditional knowledge is fast losing its value. As our world stands on the brink of an idea explosion, it is our ability to absorb new knowledge and come up with new ideas - and to make them come true - that is ever-increasingly important.
