How much information is delivered to us over the course of a day, a week, a year. Those of us who care have a fair idea of what is happening in the world, but where's the bigger picture? Enriquez lays it all out before us only to bring it back together and make us see. In a talk of his on DVD from 2007 he gives us glimpses into the future that I hadn't heard of or read so far. This is 2009. God knows how far they've come now! This book should be required reading.

This is a very difficult book to review because it depends so much on expectations and the readers own viewpoint. It describes the very personal view of the author and his (quite dogmatic) vision of the future. It is written in a very individual, modern style and is quite "matter-of-fact" about the issues it confronts. I found it a challenging read but, because I like to be challenged, it appealed to me somewhat, even though it doesn't interlock easily with my personal ethics. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, so maybe leave it alone if you prefer conventional writing. This book was recommended to me by my Latino friends and seems to be a talking point in the Americas. Try it but please put up your own review.
