5.0 out of 5 stars Value Add / MUST READ
Reviewed in the United States on June 20, 2016
The FUTURE s ( in all domains ) are emergent Phenomena , therefore , cannot be predicted with certainty . The Singularity movement suggests that we can excommunicate humans in many arenas because of exponential growth of our computing / digitized tools based on Moore 's law .

Futurists and humanists Smyre and Richardson along with an eclectic team have taken a totally and totipotential novel approach - futures can be prepared for , change and complexity , as expected and natural , can be abided with tools AND human BEST s , and seamless transformations AND transitions can be better aligned , utilizing their mentoring .

As has been stated by Zalman , while not an easy read, it is worth the effort to delve into its richness as it is based on 25 years of existential and experiential practice and exudes wisdom !

This is without question a tome which may launch a meta formative platform which actualizes AND realitizes NEXT s - principles for others to take to humanity's
co creations and co designs to scale and globally !
