When humans first discovered fire, they created the future. Makers of Fire is about embracing this heritage and stepping up to our role as a major driver of change.

As our species matures and reaches out to touch the stars, what do we take and what do we leave behind? In other words, as we turn towards the 22nd century, how can we create the future?

Join author Alex McManus on a journey through a galaxy of ideas. How can we navigate our culture of rapid change? What can Cain, Abraham, and Jesus teach us about leading from the future? Get ready to make fire.
