Millions of lives lost to catastrophes--natural and man-made--could have been saved by the advance warnings of experts. Can we find those prescient people before the next catastrophe strikes? Two CEOs and White House national security veterans reveal insider views of previous disasters, chilling insights on today's threats to mankind, and a prescription to protect us

This is the story of the future of national security, threatening technologies, the US economy, and possibly the fate of civilization.

In Greek mythology Cassandra foresaw calamities, but was cursed by the gods to be ignored. Modern-day Cassandras clearly predicted the disasters of Katrina, Fukushima, the Great Recession, the rise of ISIS, and many others. Like her, they were ignored. There are others right now warning of impending disasters, but how do we know which warnings are likely to be right?

Through riveting explorations in a variety of fields, the authors uncover a method to separate the accurate Cassandras from the crazy doomsayers. They then investigate the experts who today are warning of future disasters--the threats from artificial intelligence, bio-hacking, mutating viruses, and more--and whose calls are not being heeded. Their penetrating insights are essential for anyone, any business, or any government that doesn't want to be a blind victim to tomorrow's catastrophe.

Reviews

"Fascinating. Richard Clarke and R. P. Eddy try to construct a science that separates the true prophets from the fantasists. It's a fascinating account, and oh, if we'd only paid attention...!"--Lawrence Wright, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Looming Tower and The Terror Years "Dick Clarke and R.P. Eddy know what they are talking about-this is not a book about miracles, it is a book about how to recognize warnings in a very dangerous world."--Leon Panetta, former Secretary of Defense "Now, more than ever, you should read this book and learn from two of the very best. A gripping read and a brilliant view of an uncertain future. Clarke and Eddy deliver veteran insights all leaders need to hear."--General Michael Hayden (Ret.), former CIA director "Clarke and Eddy's veteran insight will be required reading for those who want to win in a future dominated by technologies and national security threats most haven't even begun to ponder."--Senator George Mitchell "In Warnings, Clarke and Eddy turn mythology into sociology and anecdote into analysis in a way that is both enlightening and important for averting catastrophes."--Garry Kasparov, author of Winter Is Coming and 13th World Chess Champion "A must read. In an increasingly risky world, finding people who see around corners is key--but once you've found them, it's just as important to listen. We need to listen to Clarke and Eddy, their leadership and vision has been second to none for decades, and they are right again."--William Bratton, former NYPD Commissioner "Warnings is an important book, vividly presenting a way for leaders to make crucial decisions."--Henry Kissinger
