S2 E06 – Jared Knott: Tiny Blunders, Big Disasters: Thirty-Nine Tiny Mistakes That Changed the World Forever

It’s amazing how one little mistake or decision can change one’s life and, perhaps, history. This week on Book Spectrum, Chris talks with Jared Knott, who compiled a library of destiny-changing little mishaps throughout the centuries in his new book: Tiny Blunders, Big Disasters: Thirty-Nine Tiny Mistakes That Changed the World Forever.

Did you know:

• An unopened letter saved the American cause in
the Revolutionary War?

• A badly designed paper ballot changed the
outcome of a presidential election and led directly to
a major war, a war that most now agree should never
have been fought in the first place?

• A German pilot’s small mistake saved Britain
and changed the course of WWII?

These are just a few little coincidences and mistakes which changed the course of world. Jared offers your listeners examples from ancient times through today.

Among his array of talents, Jared Knott has published several articles in the Mensa Bulletin and in graduate school textbooks on subjects ranging from Supreme Court Reform to Arctic Exploration. He was a decorated combat infantry officer in Vietnam in the First Air Cavalry Division. In his civilian career, he has been a marketing leader in the home improvement industry.

S01-E14: Kevin Schewe – Bad Love Tigers, a sequel to Bad Love Strikes

Kevin Schewe is back with a new Sci-Fi Time Travel Sequel: Bad Love Tigers, his sequel to Bad Love Strikes (which was featured on our first Book Spectrum show).

Author (and Oncologist) Dr. Kevin Schewe asks “What if you had the chance to go back in time and talk to President Roosevelt about the atomic bomb? What would you say to him?”Schewe explores this topic and more in his much-anticipated time-travel adventure novel, Bad Love Tigers.

After going back in time to rescue people from the Nazis, Schewe’s sequel to Bad Love Strikes sees the Bad Love Gang – Pud, Bubble Butt and the others – taking another trip to the World War II era, this time to warn President Franklin D. Roosevelt about the Germans’ plans to create the atomic bomb. The President would enlist their help to protect The US’ White Hole Time Travel Project, Area 51 and an adventure leading them all the way to WWII China.
