Once I started reading, I found it very difficult to put down. I've read many books highlighting the damage of our separation to the environment, the majority being harrowingly depressing, but this gem doesn't fall in line with the others. How to Thrive in the Next Economy is full of hope, but it is not unrealistic and demanding a forced utopia. It outlines communities all over the world, stories highlighting resilience and centuries of knowledge, which range from the way we treat our elderly to our relationship with soil.
We are at a turning point of human psychological evolution, one that is essential to our survival and ability to thrive on this planet. The conclusion is powerful, but much simpler than you think. With such resonating wisdom, I'm left feeling confused as to why I'm the first person reviewing this book. It is a fantastic, well-written account of grassroots movements stripping down the complexities of the 21st century... and returning home.
