In episode 147 of the Futurized podcast (@futurized2), the topic is: Health Tech Reboot. Today, I have no guest. Instead, I'm talking about my new book, Health Tech: Rebooting Society's Software, Hardware and Mindset.

In this episode, I answer the following questions, which typically are asked of authors: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your background and how it's relevant to the topic of the book? Why did you write this book? How did you come up with the title for your book? What’s your message? Who should read it? What are are people saying about your book so far? Would you read us an excerpt from the book? Can you take us through some key chapters? How long on average does it take you to write a book? What was the most challenging aspect of writing this book? How much research did you need to do for your book?

Futurized goes beneath the trends to track the underlying forces of disruption in tech, policy, business models, social dynamics and the environment. I’m your host, Trond Arne Undheim (@trondau), futurist, author, investor, and serial entrepreneur. Join me as I discuss the societal impact of deep tech such as AI, blockchain, IoT, nanotech, quantum, robotics, and synthetic biology, and tackle topics such as entrepreneurship, trends, or the future of work. On the show, I interview smart people with a soul: founders, authors, executives, and other thought leaders, or even the occasional celebrity.
