Have you read John’s book?

John Hornick has written an excellent book to explain, in layman’s terms for the most part, the many ways 3D printing is going to change our world. Just as the first and second industrial revolutions had an impact far beyond manufacturing processes, so, too will the 3D Printing revolution.

“Want to know how, in specific detail, 3D printing will rock the world? Well, then, IP lawyer and 3D printing expert John Hornick has the book for you! I had the pleasure of reading Hornick’s new book 3D Printing Will Rock the World (available on Amazon) and he does an excellent job of describing exactly how 3D printing will rock the world from a technological, economic, and, even, social standpoint. And, by the end of his book, readers may very well be convinced that, because of this technology, the world will be so thoroughly rocked that it will become unrecognizable.  . . .

“Hornick is extending his 3D printing knowledge from within the walls of his firm into a new book called “3D Printing Will Rock the World”, which details where additive manufacturing technology currently is and where it will inevitably go in the near-future. Hornick focuses on making the book accessible to almost anybody with a keen interest in the young, yet expansive history of 3D printing, writing a book geared for both the consumer and hobbyist as well as the interested businessperson or investor type too. . . .
