3D Printing Will Rock the World is now available for purchase here on Amazon just in time for Santa, and the Kindle version will be available soon.
The book is an excellent read for any investor in the space and I highly recommend it.
I’ve had the pleasure of hearing the author, John Hornick, speak at multiple 3D printing conferences, and his knowledge of the industry and trends is encyclopedic. John Hornick has been widely published and is the only IP attorney selected by the National Academies to participate in the US Comptroller General Forum on Additive Manufacturing (which was the basis of a report to the US Congress), and is a juror for the International Additive Manufacturing Award.
3D Printing Will Rock the World is a book about technological innovation and business, and how 3D printers will change the world in many ways. It will interest:
- the business reader who wants to know how 3D printing may affect manufacturing, product design, where things are made, the jobs market, how companies do business, and how it may be misused
- the general reader and average consumer who is curious about 3D printing, especially parents, whose kids will help drive the adoption of this technology
- Makers, who already believe that 3D printers will help change the world
- potential investors, who want to learn about this technology and its potential
Industry leaders have this to say about 3D Printing Will Rock the World:
