Qualman is spot on; a fully transparent world changes everything. - Magic Johnson 

This is my new book - I hope you can support me by backing this Kickstarter project! I've been fortunate to have written two international best sellers (Socialnomics and Digital Leader) via big publishers (Wiley, McGraw-Hill). For this book I have the desire to own the art of which I create. I need your help. I truly believe this book needs to be written today so please select an option on the right to back this project.

Book content: Privacy is dead. Reputations are dying every second. What is the cost? What is the upside and downside of a fully transparent world? What does it mean for our kids today and in the future? 

I explore the art and science behind why transparency is shaping the world around us.

This book takes a look at what a fully transparent world means for society, humanity and the future of the world. 

#1 best selling author Erik Qualman was voted the second Most Likeable Author in the World behind Harry Potter’s J.K. Rowling.

Risks and challenges

Having self-published, as well as traditionally published two international best sellers (Socialnomics & Digital Leader) via traditional publishers (Wiley and McGraw-Hill) I'm confident this book will be a tremendous success.

The one thing I need though is the SUPPORT FROM YOU, my fans! Please let me get this book off the ground and into your hands (or fingers if a Kindle). Thank you.

    COVER POSTCARD: Do you know someone that's tweeting or posting things that they wouldn’t say in front of their mother? We have just the trick. I’ll send a postcard to their mailing address.

Always remember, what happens in Vegas stays on YouTube for the world to see. Mahalo, @equalman”
