Book of the Month; The Futurist

Over the break, I read a great little novel called The Futurist.

Written by James P. Othmer, former Executive Director of Young & Rubican, the novel is about a futurist – Yates – who travels the world from global conference to conference, brining hope about the future.

But during the opening of the novel, Yates finally gets tired of all the BS his life is about and goes off the wagon – speaking the truth no matter what the consequences.

What I liked about this novel is that it’s over the top, out of control writing with some neat mini narratives interwoven – like a private space station for rich billionaire’s that runs out of oxygen on reality TV.

As someone who doesn’t read much fiction, it was nice to take a break from the ad books and the other stuff and really get into this good story. Highly recommended if you’re in the mood for something different.

Thanks to PC for the book!
