In the 1980s, Howard Bloom ran the biggest PR firm in the music industry, with an epic client list that included Michael Jackson, Prince, Bob Marley, Billy Joel, Queen, and Joan Jett. But in 1987, he disappeared, struck down by a rare disease that left him bedridden for fifteen years. He went back to his roots, microbiology, theoretical physics, and psychology, and eventually resurfaced–this time as an original scientific thinker, putting out one book after another, each work connected in a quest to understand humanity’s place in the cosmos. Now 77 years old and feeling stronger than he was when he was 19, Bloom believes he’s figured out what the universe wants from each of us; he just needs to get it all down in the time he has left.
