Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Here is Houston at her finest, using colorful allusions from her extensive reading of great literature and fascinating anecdotes from her rich personal experiences in exploring human capacities. Jump Time suggests how human beings can awaken to their own possibilities, how technology opens people of the world to each other, and how wisdom and spirituality are combining to lead humanity into a more positive future. Houston describes as well the emergence of a global community of shared cultures and ethnicities. This book really stretches the mind to a new dimension.
