I loved the info contained in this this book and the way it is written. I will take much of the names mentioned to dig deeper and enjoyed the aliveness of the interview. The second part of the book was also a blessing for me. I feel part of a greater whole and look very much forward to the follow-up book(s). I am a mother of 4 and I am also a La leche League Leader and Attachment Parenting Leader and I found it pretty sweet to know that John McKnight mentioned LLL :)). I do not know where my lack of trust of institutions comes from but it is with me for a long time now. That is why my kids were not born at or are being educated in/through institutions.
I am really glad to have found ABCD as it fills for me some gaps that were left by my studies of Attachment Theory and Nonviolent Communication and really do I look forward the next books in this series and wish we could do the next European ABCD Festival in Portugal and then I would love to contribute some stories.

Been enjoying reading the book for the second time and absolutely looking forward to reading the full book. The style of the book, which is a conversation/interview with John McKnight is just amazing. It brings John to my room and makes me feel like I am directly having this conversation with him about ABCD, it's stories and heritage, and the other 9 influential CD thinkers. Giving a real sense of the ABCD heritage by John, definitely is one of the best ways of getting an in-depth understanding and insight into the ABCD, what it really is about and where it stands. It embraces and answers most of the critiques on ABCD as well in plain language through real stories and conversations. As I said, I am absolutely looking forward to reading the full book!

Absolutely inspirational! A revealing insight into the thinking of someone who really understands how to nurture and develop the latent potential of our communities. And we all live in a community.

This was my introduction to ABCD, and what a great introduction. Cormac Russell skilfully interviews John McKnight to get a rich narrative history of community development in its various forms, via the major figures in the field, especially those who have influenced John McKnight. It is conversational in tone and split into sections according to the figures, with some concluding reflections. It is therefore very easy to read. It is very useful as an introduction to ABCD and as an explanation of its historical influences for those who are already familiar with ABCD. I look forward to reading more from Cormac Russell.
