About the author

Stefan Engseth – Guest Professor, Shark Diver and Speaker.
All his life he has seen patterns of the future and been called the ‘Creative Futurist.' Over the last 20 years, he has spotted and seen the future over and over again. He is often described as one of the world’s leading experts and speakers in his field.

Besides diving and speaking, Stefan is also the founder and CEO of Detective Marketing – a consulting firm that helps companies around the world find new business opportunities in areas such as strategy, business development, and trendspotting.

After successfully writing four books (including ‘One’ and ‘Sharkonomics,' which has been translated into several languages), Stefan has kept on uncovering patterns where few are looking. Patterns that can change how we live and challenge the status quo. Patterns so simple that it sometimes can appear both stupid and genius at the same time. In his latest book ’Homo Stupido: Are We Intelligent or Stupid?’, Stefan captures what’s next for humankind.

Synopsis

As a kid, I got into trouble with my teachers a lot, because I did not believe them. Could it really be true that we, Homo Sapiens, achieved all that stupidity taught to us in history class?

This book explores how unbelievably strange it is that the creature, Homo Sapiens, became the dominant force in the paradise of the universe we call Earth.

We are in the age of a new Cold War, fake news powered by troll factories, election meddling, increased authoritarian leadership and fundamentalism. Now nobody is arguing with me – it’s become widely accepted that we are in fact Homo Stupido! This has inspired the title of my next book: Homo Stupido: Are We Intelligent or Stupid?

We are all born a genius, so why does stupidity dominate everything from war, the environment, politics to economics, terror and sport?

• As a Homo Genius, it would be stupid not to read this book.
• As a Homo Stupido, it would be genius to read this book.
• Discover the animal kingdom’s take on Homo Sapiens.
• Learn how artificial intelligence (AI) and technology will upgrade the human race.
• Explore the new species – Homo Earth.

I've previously written four books, including One and Sharkonomics, which have been translated into several languages. Sharkonomics recently sold over 10,000 copies in China. In my next book, Homo Stupido, I will be moving away from pure business books into simply capturing what’s next for humankind.

“I know that we should never underestimate human stupidity. 
It’s one of the most powerful forces in history.” 

– Professor Yuval Noah Harari, Author of Sapiens

“Two things are infinite: the Universe and human stupidity.”

– Albert Einstein

“There is no sin except stupidity.”

– Oscar Wilde

"My heart is broken in the face of the stupidity of my species."
– Joni Mitchell

“Never argue with stupid people.”

– Mark Twain

Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
