If you are in media, advertising or service businesses Futuretainment is absolutely required reading. You better get ready for the ride. If you disagree with Mike's conclusions, you probably should be put out to pasture - this is the future of media, and it's coming fast!

Futuretainment maps the impetus behind changing consumer behavior in a rich, enigmatic and engaging way. The format of Mike's book is great, it is a serious book, but you don't feel like it is a chore to read although the content is bold, provocative and inspirational.

Well done Mike - great read!

This book is amazing- it's like a journey in time, cultures, devices and technology.
Mike Walsh managed to explain modern technology and communications in a medium- book- that considered to be "old world".
Walsh did it intelligently, conveying the message in a great visual way that fires up the imagination and helps understand the given concepts.
I recommend this book- a must to have at any house!

Thank you!
