Peter Diamandis

Planetary Resources, The Asteroid Mining Company represents big think. If you're not familiar with the name Peter Diamandis, asteroid mining is just one of his massively transformative ventures. 

Planetary Resources is bringing the natural resources of space within humanity’s economic sphere of influence, propelling us into the 21st century and beyond…today

I have heard stories of asteroid mining recently, but knew few detail. After reading BOLD, Peter Diamandis and Steven Kolter's thought expanding book, I understood more about its origin. Its not a big government program, it's being driven by individuals with a massively transformative purpose.   

The blogs I'm interested in appear daily in my Feedly app, so I don't subscribe to emails from the many outstanding blog authors, Peter Diamandis is the one exception. BOLD expanded my thinking, as Peter might say; "exponentially." 

If you're going to read only one book this year, I recommend you make it BOLD.
