As regular readers of this column know, my latest book “Entering the Shift Age” was published in January. The early feedback has been quite positive. After spending a year writing the book and the 12 mini-eBooks it is very satisfying to get such positive initial feedback. Though I think it is the best book I have written, it is so nice to have others say the same thing.
First I want to thank all those that have gone to Amazon to purchase the book. In the past week it has become a best seller, achieving #1 status in the categories of Business Planning and Forecasting, #1 in Future of Computing and #1 in Future of Technology. There doesn’t seem to be a category anywhere simply called “The Future”. In addition it attained an overall sales rank of 912 for all books on Amazon, the highest ranking ever for any of my books.
Second I want to thank all of those of you who have gone into Barnes & Noble in recent weeks to purchase a copy. Since there is no category about the future in the bricks and mortar world as well, the book gets placed in various subject areas having little to do with the future, so I thank those of you who asked for the book by name. The book is also available at select independent bookstores as well.
Third, I want to share some of the comments, interviews, guest columns and media appearances from recent weeks. These links are below. Thank you to all these people for their interest and support. Thanks to all of you who have already purchased the book. I hope you are enjoying it and are feeling better about the bright future and transformative times that are directly ahead.
