As he took his eyes off the road for one last second, he heard the squealing of tires, the twisting of metal, combined with the airbag explosion and the shattering of broken glass.

From The Author

Over the last 30 years, I have spent a majority of my time inventing and building products, software, and technologies. Recently, I came to a point in my life where I still loved inventing and creating, but I was tired of having to make things work and keep them operational. Interestingly enough, writing has become my release. When I write, especially sci-fi stories, I still feel the same reward of invention and creation; however, I don’t have to build a prototype, or even write one line of code. As matter of fact, after the research is done, all I have to do is explain it, say it works, and magically all the technology in the story works, just because I said it did! Obviously, this is far easier than conceiving an idea, patenting it, building a business and marketing plan, procuring sales and investment, and so on, and so on. Seriously though, I really love to write, and the older I get the more it seems like my passion.

We all know many concepts and ideas born in sci-fi can become reality. So I hope this book will help to slow down evil usages of future ideas and inventions. However, based on history, I doubt it.

Mindset has many parallels to my own life that are very close to my heart. I really hope you like the story.
