Barton Kunstler, Ph.D., is the author of the soon to be finished novel, The Courier, a thriller set against the backdrop of the global criminal underworld. His book, The Hothouse Effect, provoked discussion among business strategists by challenging organizations to apply the secrets of history's most creative communities to their own operations. Leadership in the Era of the Human Singularity, Kunstler's monograph written for the National Intelligence Council, examines how leadership will change in the military and intelligence communities as performance-enhancing tech systems are integrated into human biochemical systems. Kunstler has also published widely on forecasting, history, and education. Dr. Kunstler's play, An Inquiry in Florence, a story of intrigue in a time of war based on the meetings in 1638 between Galileo and John Milton, recently premiered at The Schoolhouse Theater in Westchester County, NY.
