Central to the book is an essay by the author and journalist Wolf Lotter on innovation and creativity as the main drivers of digital society. The surprise is an appeal for a culture of curiosity, for less safety thinking and more self-determination. The »surprise-ability« thus gained becomes the decisive factor for the correct understanding of the world of tomorrow.
