London, UK, May 28, 2012 -- Last month, leaders in innovation gathered at the White House. The topic, "how to better communicate the President's message to the public." But innovators and futurists outside the White House were busy commenting on a new book by Nick Eftimiades entitled "Edward of Planet Earth". The book offers extraordinary insights into humanity's future and has been nominated for the prestigious Global E-book Award.
Bill Prady, Co-Creator of the Big Bang Theory TV Show who did attend the White House workshop had this to say about the book: "With his comedic dystopian future history populated by hapless reluctant heroes and lovesick artificial intelligences, Nick takes a big step toward becoming the American Douglas Adams"
"Edward of Planet Earth" looks 200 years into the future of today's most advanced technology. The result is a unique insight into a zany world where the meaning as well as the definition of life is open to interpretation. Everything is fair game as Edward navigates befuddled governments, psychotic software, greedy corporations, overly attentive robots, and romance in a quest to discover the true nature of existence in a society based on science.
Mr. Eftimiades is known worldwide for his book "Chinese Intelligence Operations" which earned him the title of "Enemy of the People" in China's People's Daily newspaper. His 30 year U.S. government career includes leading planning efforts for future national security space programs and technology development efforts.
Nick is a frequent lecturer and public speaker on future technology, societal changes, and national security issues. He has appeared on CBS Evening News with Connie Chung, Dateline NBC, ABC's Day One, BBC America, National Public Radio, and dozens of other television and radio broadcasts. He has testified before several US Congressional and Presidential Commissions.
