Hang In There ...

Any additional comments?

The first couple chapters were sluggish and felt redundant to me. However, once James Canton got into the heart of the subject matter I found myself bookmarking and googling like crazy. He goes way way out there into the future but keeps the reader firmly planted in the here and now. Really suggest this book if you're the type of person who's always asking the question .. What's Next?
