Product Description

From the Author

An update on the relevance of the book
A new edition of the book has just been published with a new introduction which connects the Y2K issue to the central argument. It was my thesis in Reworking Success that the directions in which we have moved for the twentieth century are no longer viable. Y2K is one of many issues that are making this statement more and more obviously true.

The implication of my argument is that the human race knows how to be succesful at achieving the goals it sets for itself. If we set a new set of goals for ourselves we can hope that we shall achieve them. I suggest that social cohesion, ecological integrity and effective decision-making can lead to a high quality of life so long as we live with a sense of the sacred and the spiritual.

The ideas in Reworking Success are now being carried forward at www.resilientcommunities.org Those who want a more detailed set of ideas about required twenty-first century directions can look at Turning the Century. The Healing Century tapes provide a base for discussion groups.

As modern day culture teeters on the brink of collapse, Theobald offers an analysis of the situation and some positive things that people can do.One of his central ideas is that ordinary people can make a difference, if only they have the will to take action and the belief that they can change things.He advocates new ways of thinking about our problems and the future, and working in a co-operative manner is stressed.He has many ideas that are worth serious consideration if we want to avoid catastrophe.

This book lays out in coherent and reality-based form where we are and where we could go to create a world for our children that works. It's a brilliant companion-book to Hartmann's "The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight" or Hubbard's "Conscious Evolution." Buy them all and help change the world for the better!

Thought Provoking! 13 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I was an economics major in college and a practicing republican. Reworking Success challenged my previous learnings and opened my eyes to a world I didn't know existed. Theobald doesn't push his views, he brings you along for a ride that you didn't even know you got on. Recommend highly! Julie in Seattle, Washington
