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

Cranthorpe Millner operates a hybrid publishing model. This means, should an author pass our editors’ strict filtering system, we can offer different kinds of agreements depending on the author and the manuscript. With some authors, we work under a ‘traditional’ model, whereby we cover the full cost of publication and the author is offered industry-standard royalties (8-10%). To some authors, we offer what we call a partnership or contributory agreement, whereby the author is asked for a financial contribution so that we may share the risk and enter into a partnership together to publish the author’s book. In this case, the author receives around 60-75% royalties.

In our model, distribution accounts are set up in your name. When a book is sold, the retailer takes a cut, the printing cost is deducted, and the balance is deposited directly into your bank account, never ours first. The difference can amount to several more dollars per book in net revenue to you. Our most popular package for non-fiction books, 50,000 words and under, including copyediting, cover design, interior layout, proofreading, eBook formatting, and distribution set up in your name is just $7,353.
