Getting to Maybe: How the world is changed (94)

I decided to read a few books that made me think long and hard this month. Of course, being a philosopher, I love books like that. And I recommend this book for anyone who would like to think and reminisce.

Many of us have a deep desire to make the world a better place. But often our good intentions are undermined by the fear that we are so insignificant nothing we can do will actually make a difference.

By studying real-life examples, Getting to Maybe harvests the experiences of a wide variety of people and organizations to lay out a brand new way of thinking about making change in communities, business and the world.

The authors illustrate that great social change is not just the province of heroes, but well within the reach of us all.

This is a very powerful, thoughtful and empowering book about the tyrannies that our society can create and how we can really make small changes that will make a big difference.
