Publisher Review

'By worshiping efficiency, we've managed to build an economic system that melted the Arctic ... Jeremy Rifkin argues that it's time to prioritize resilience instead ... I defy anyone not to be fascinated and provoked by the vision he unfolds!' - Bill McKibben, Pioneer Climate Activist and Author 'Jeremy Rifkin has always been ahead of the curve' - Vandana Shiva, Environmental Activist and recipient of the Right Livelihood Award 'Every policy maker, politician, educator, civic and religious leader should heed his advice. Change at the magnitude needed to save the planet requires a global realignment in how we think. Fortunately, Rifkin has provided us with a detailed roadmap' - Ken Burns, Documentary Filmmaker 'Breaks ranks with the conventional economic wisdom that encourages unlimited economic development on a planet with finite natural resources. He suggests that we need to think of 'nature as our classroom' and reimagine every aspect of our existence - our concepts of time and space, economic life, governance, and even our notions of selfhood - so that life might flourish once again on Earth. This book invites us to engage in a radically new conversation about our species' future. It's long overdue' - Jane Goodall, Primatologist
