"Just the idea of looking at the creation of your future as a serial experience, as is done in The Visionary's Handbook, is a breakthrough for business planning and especially for one's own life. A must read."
Christopher Forbes

"The authors combine an intellectual thrust with old-fashioned, down-home logic. There is a consistent theme within this book that urges you to become part of your own story; the style ensures that you become part of their story."
David S. Ford
Chief Executive
Gardner Merchant Food and Management Services

"The form of the book perfectly mirrors its message that inherent truth has yielded to individual 'neotribe' realities and that it is only in embracing your own present reality that you can forecast any viable future. I must say that you've given me a lot to think about both professionally and personally, and I look forward to hearing the presentations that will evolve out of this book."
Don Epstein

Philip Kotler
Professor of International Marketing
Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University

"As a University professor and one of the originator of the Third International Mathematics and Science study, I have a strong appreciation for both breadth of view and focus (that is vision) in creating something new. This book is one of the most creative and thoughtful discussions of what it means to be a visionary in today's world. I encourage every person who is placed in a leadership role, whether in business or some other field, to especially read the first chapter of this book."

"The 500 Year Delta was an interesting book. The Visionary's Handbook is an important book. Not just a quick read, this book requires an intellectual engagement from the reader, a full involvement working through the exercises and aggressively absorbing and processing its contents. The personal return on such an intellectual investment will be endless, continuing as far in the reader's future as can be imagined.

"I can see no way that your life and business future could fail to be enriched if you take the time to really think through the principles and issues presented in this book. What a lucky circumstance! About how many books can we say that?"

Frank Lane

Pyramid Consulting

"Should find an important place on any thoughtful manager's desk."
James Abernathy

"The world changed. Click companies want to build brand as though they were mortar companies. Brick and mortar companies are striving to be on-line click companies.
