"Kevin's book could be sketchily summarized in fifteen or twenty blog posts, and I'm tempted to do so, but I think you should do the more direct thing and just read it. That way, as I steal from it again and again going forward, you'll nod your head in recognition of the power of what he's writing about.
Hint: it's as good as Guns, Germs and Steel, which I consider one of the most important big-thought books ever."
I disagree slightly with Seth - it's not the book of the year, it's more like the book of the decade, or century. That's because renaissances don't happen very often, but when they do, they span hundreds of years, and their impact is felt for millennia.
And further, our renaissance is less about the individual, and more about the collective community - a globally connected network of people interdependently collaborating together to create our shared present and future.
For those who've read my book or heard me speak - from the United Nations (3 times this year alone) to the US Embassy, from Columbia University to the University of Missouri School of Journalism - I've been saying the same thing: our neo-axial age and the technology that enables it gives EVERYONE the chance to "be the media."
We live in unprecedented times!
I was fortunate to have interviewed Kevin about his new book. You can listen to that interview below:
I'm also excited to annouce that Kevin will be our special guest on a FREE preview call for our Blockbuster Online Success Seminar (Boss) on Thursday, Oct 21 at 8pmET / 5pmPT.
