I'm excited to report that our new book, 'Threats in the Age of Obama' is now available for purchase -- from Amazon, as well as directly from our publisher, Nimble Books (same price; take your pick). Here's the cover:
I contributed a chapter entitled "Preparing One's Mind to See" expanding on this post last fall by about an order of magnitude (writing for publication is far more exacting than blogging!) Here's the brief blurb on Amazon:
If you are on a mission to change the way government works, particularly in the national security arena, this is one place where some independent and intellectually diverse thinking is to be found. In these essays, we offer our view of some of the more pressing threats the Obama administration will have to deal with in these early days of the 21st century.
The title should not be taken as implying that this is a political book or that its insights are for the short term. Just the opposite. My esteemed co-authors make up a fascinating and insightful bunch of long-term thinkers who come at this from a wide array of perspectives.
Whatever you may have thought the next decade may bring before reading this, I guarantee you will be challenged to think about it differently, more holistically and in more depth afterward.
My co-authors are: Dan tdaxp, Christopher Albon, Matt Armstrong, Matthew Burton, Molly Cernicek, Christopher Corpora, Shane Deichman, Adam Elkus, Matt Devost, Bob Gourley, Tom Karako, Carolyn Leddy, Samuel Liles, Adrian Martin, Gunnar Peterson, Cheryl Rofer, Mark Safranski, Steve Schippert, Tim Stevens, and Shlok Vaidya. And last, but really first, editor, contributor and chief cat-herder, Michael Tanji.
But before you get distracted reading everyone's bio or blog... BUY THE BOOK! :)
Side note: It's been quite a thrill just to get this far. The team is spread across eight different time zones. Most of us know one another's writings but only some of us have ever spoken live, much less met face-to-face. Welcome to the future of publishing.
