revolutionizing drug discovery and delivery
If you had to guess how long it takes for a drug to go from an idea to your pharmacy, what would...
"Essential reading for anyone looking for a better tomorrow."
"If you read one business book in the twenty-first century, this should be the one."
"This is a manual for today’s big thinkers to become tomorrow’s bold leaders"
In this gripping and insightful roadmap to our near future, Diamandis and Kotler investigate how wave after wave of exponentially accelerating technologies will impact both our daily lives and society as a whole.
What happens as AI, robotics, virtual reality, digital biology, and sensors crash into 3D printing, blockchain, and global gigabit networks? How will these convergences transform today’s legacy industries? What will happen to the way we raise our kids, govern our nations, and care for our planet?
This radical, how-to guide for using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools, BOLD unfolds in three parts.
Part One focuses on the exponential technologies that are disrupting today’s Fortune 500 companies and enabling upstart entrepreneurs. Part Two draws on insights from billionaires such as Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos and reveals their entrepreneurial secrets. Finally, BOLD closes with a look at the best practices that allow anyone to leverage today’s hyper-connected crowd like never before.
BOLD enables individuals and entrepreneurs to make their boldest dreams come true.
In Abundance, space entrepreneur turned innovation pioneer Peter H. Diamandis and award-winning science writer Steven Kotler document how progress in artificial intelligence, robotics, digital manufacturing synthetic biology, and other exponentially growing technologies will enable us to make greater gains in the next two decades than we have in the previous 200 years.
We will soon have the ability to meet and exceed the basic needs of every person on the planet. Abundance for all is within our grasp.
Peter Diamandis was the son of hardworking immigrants who wanted their science prodigy to make the family proud and become a doctor. But from the age of eight, when he watched Apollo 11 land on the Moon, his singular goal was to get to space. When he realized NASA was winding down manned space flight, Diamandis set out on one of the great entrepreneurial adventure stories of our time. If the government wouldn’t send him to space, he would create a private space flight industry himself.
The story of the bullet-shaped SpaceShipOne, and the other teams in the hunt, is an extraordinary tale of making the impossible possible.
