This is a collection of 24 essays (or similar short articles) by various writers, mostly 'experts' in fields such as economics or ecology, the theme being the failure of capitalism and what we should do about it. The ideas are mostly sensible and interesting, and of course the subject itself is of vital importance.
Inevitably with a collection such as this, the different writers often cover the same ground as each other, leading to a fair degree of repetition. I didn't find this too much of a problem however, as the approaches vary and these topics are at the same time both vital and yet generally ignored by the vast majority, including most leaders and politicians, so they need to be repeated until those with a degree of power begin to take notice.
Some of the writers are well known (eg: Joseph Stiglitz, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein) while others are more obscure, but the majority are well worth reading and well written. A couple of entries waffle on about obscure or vague concepts without actually explaining how they would really work (eg: Michael Albert outlining 'his vision' of 'participatory economics', which seems totally unrealistic to me). But overall, this is a useful addition to an extremely important topic; the debate concerning the future of civilization.
