“The best way to predict the future is to create it yourself.” is the personal motto for Dr. Peter Diamandis.

Peter’s Laws: The Creed of the Persistent and Passionate Mind, lists 28 ideas for making a brighter future.

In the face of current obvious global challenges such as global warming, growing income inequality, population growth, international terrorist violence, isolationist reactions and ugly political rhetoric, it is hard to remain optimistic. But Peter Diamandis cites the evidence of abundance.

Peter Diamandis (Founder and Executive Chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation) and Steven Kotler, published the book Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think in 2012. It is a thrilling antidote to today’s dark pessimism.

“The authors rely on exhaustive research and extensive interviews with top scientists, innovators, and captains of industry to explore how four emerging forces—exponential technologies, the DIY innovator, the Technophilanthropist, and the Rising Billion—are conspiring to solve our biggest problems. ”

Diamandis is also the Co-Founder and Vice-Chairman of Human Longevity Inc. (HLI), a genomics and cell therapy-based diagnostic and therapeutic company focused on extending the healthy human lifespan. He is also the Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Singularity University, a graduate-level Silicon Valley institution that studies exponentially growing technologies, their ability to transform industries and solve humanity’s grand challenges.
