Read full description of the books Megatrends 2000:Besides a good Author and Proven Future Forecaster; John Nesbit is a Truly Wise and Kind Individual, who almost radiates Warmth and Contentment. He must be doing _Something_ Right! At least so are my 11-year-old Memories from 1990, when my father, World Renowned Architect Theodore W. Brown (http://www.tbrownarchitect.com), Custom-Designed a Massive and Awesome Log-Cabin-esq Mansion for John in Telluride, Colorado, later featured in Architectural Digest.
John and his equally impressive wife Patricia Aburdine(at the time, now I am pleasantly surprised to learn, she is a Future Forecaster, herself!)were both working on MegaTrends 2000, after the Super-Success of John's Prediction's in MegaTrends were ALL COMING TO PASS... At Christmas, John gave me an Authentic Hopi Bear Fetish, of Green Stone, with a Lapis-Lazuli Arrowhead tied to his back, as my name "Barrett" is Teutonic and means "Mighty as a Bear, or Bear-Like," thus one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever been given. His wife gave me a bizarre 15,000 year-old Fossilized Fish of some Type, still half-carved in rock (Perhaps Future Forecasting my Academic Calling to Anthropology?), which my mother assured me, to my utter befuddlement, had cost a Small Fortune. I never quite understood that Fossil... But it stayed with me for many years and I'd look at it Quizickly, from time to time.
That Christmas John gave me one of the Kindest and most Insightful COMPLIMENTS that, I think, anyone has ever given to me. Spoken to my Father, within earshot; "That boy is so far in front of the Parade, most people don't even realize that he is _in_ it!" <3
