Sale Page: http://www.disk.com/portfolios/peter-diamondis-abundance-thinking-package/
Since the dawn of humanity, a privileged few have lived in stark contrast to the hardscrabble majority. Conventional wisdom says this gap cannot be closed. But it is closing—fast. In Abundance, space entrepreneur turned innovation pioneer Peter H. Diamandis and award-winning science writer Steven Kotler document how progress in artificial intelligence, robotics, infinite computing, ubiquitous broadband networks, digital manufacturing, nanomaterials, synthetic biology, and many other exponentially growing technologies will enable us to make greater gains in the next two decades than we have in the previous two hundred years.
Exponential and Abundance Thinking
Below is an overview of the 10 modules that Ray and I discuss in this Exponential & Abundance Thinking knowledge course. Each video session goes deep into these topics and points out questions, which you can directly apply to your business. I will only be making this product available until June 28, 2013 or while supplies last.
