Best Brief in the World

Busy week. Trying to finish off the new book, which has been painful.

Got an email from a large Swiss pharmaceuticals company a few days ago asking whether I’d like to go to Prague to talk to them about Macro-trends. I said yes, but then they moved the cheese. I’ll probably end up in Melbourne now instead. Then I got asked about Arizona. Ummm..?

Meanwhile, the best brief I’ve ever received landed on my desk by way of a letter (remember those?). Would I like to go away somewhere really remote to think about the future of water and not come back until I’ve got an answer? I said I’d think about it.

    If you’re thinking about the future of water, Robert Glennon’s Unquenchable: America’s Water Crisis and What To Do About It is a good read (mostly about problems in the USA alone, but the lessons are general). If you want to also ponder earth as well, try David R. Montgomery’s Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations (which has a global perspective).
