There are studies that indicate that the speed at which constantly evolving geopolitical events affect people, businesses and nations - from diplomacy to international security to societies and everything in between - and how much information is available to consume - can make individuals feel bombarded, or attacked. That can cause stress or anxiety and have real physical health effects.
But too little information may leave you vulnerable to worse.
Best-selling author, Jack Carr’s new book, True Believer, merges the chaos of too much and too little information, who has it and who doesn't in a rip-roaring adventure for James Reece, the world’s most wanted domestic terrorist. Combining terror attacks, market tailspins, holidays and vengeance, with a little strong arming thrown in for good measure, True Believer has been called one of the best thrillers of 2019.
Stratfor’s Chief Security Officer, Fred Burton, spoke to Carr about the book, and his career as a Navy SEAL sniper, outdoorsman, and now, author.
