Barton Kunstler, Ph.D., is the author of the soon to be finished novel, <em>The Courier</em>, a thriller set against the backdrop of the global criminal underworld. His book, <em>The Hothouse Effect</em>, provoked discussion among business strategists by challenging organizations to apply the secrets of history's most creative communities to their own operations. <em>Leadership in the Era of the Human Singularity</em>, 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, <em>An Inquiry in Florence</em>, 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.
