Moonshots: Creating a World of Abundance
Okay--I'm going to start by saying that this book makes me a bit angry.
And it's not for the reasons you may think: it's because this is SUCH an important book, and it's not being taught to the masses, and heralded in schools (well, of COURSE not, as they are as Jain puts it, 'too invested in the status quo' to have a book as innovative as this in their system).
This book is literally having a billionaire/genius/philanthropist in your ear, letting you know where the world is going, how to capitalize on that and how we can ALL make this a better place for humanity.
It tells you what the future looks like. It's like the Wayne Gretzky quote about skating to where the puck will be...yet the rest of mankind is happy going through life in a trance, content with incremental changes...without knowing about the tsunami of massive change that is already happening all around us.
As impressive as this book is in telling us what will happen and how life will change, the most important aspect of the book is that the reader gets a glimpse into HOW the mind of Naveen Jain works. He is, without a doubt, the most optimistic, positive, possibility-oriented person I've ever experienced--
And this book is like a roadmap to that mind.
It lets us know not what to think, but the possibilities of HOW to think.
It's amazing, it's groundbreaking, and as dense as society is right now, I don't think the brilliance of this book will be discovered until many years later. It's almost too much to handle, as the folks in mainstream media, more concerned with who is marrying who, and what somebody said about someone else can't get their collective minds around such important ideas.
Thank you, Naveen for writing such an important book.
P.S. The picture is an example of how I've marked up and highlighted this book. It's amazing. It's the textbook to the future.
P.P.S. I got the Audible and hardback versions, so I can listen, then go back and take notes. It's that impactful.
