Possible Futures: Creative Thinking for the Speed of Life

By Jude Treder-Wolff

From the back of the book:

“Jude Treder-Wolff deconstructs the strands of our increasingly fast-paced, technologically-driven and socially fragmented lives. In the face of 21st Century media pressures and consumerism, Possible Futures is a handbook for living with the creativity, consciousness and connectedness we need to succeed in these times.”

Possible Futures is a lesson in living outside the box. It’s about letting go of self-imposed barriers to creativity and success.

Jude Treder-Wolff explains why it’s important to let go of the fear of the unknown in order to try new ideas and accomplish personal goals.

And she does it with quite a flare.

She also quotes some known and respected writers along the way and provides references that could be extremely helpful to someone who would like to read more about this interesting topic.

It’s a good book and one that should be on everyone’s shelf.

However, I had a problem with the editing and-or proofreading. There is an abundance of typos, grammar errors, punctuation mistakes in this book and for someone who is experienced at editing, this presents quite a distraction. It took me a while to stop seeing them so I could concentrate on the important and poignant message Jude was telling the reader.

I would suggest keeping that in mind when you begin reading this book.

Although it sounds as if this book needs further editing, it also sounds fascinating. Thanks for your review, LuAnn.
