Product description

Review

"We are going to need the best possible leaders to guide us out of this mess and start us on the path to a sustainable future. In this fascinating book, Sara Parkin condenses her years of teaching experience into the definitive 'how-to' guide to sustainability leadership. Should be compulsory reading for everyone over 16." – Tim Jackson, Economics Commissioner, UK Sustainable Development Commission and author of Prosperity without Growth

"Want to know how the future thinks? Plug into the world of the Forum for the Future Scholars. As Sara Parkin, eminence grise behind the Masters in Leadership for Sustainable Development, puts it, 'The Future starts here'" – John Elkington, Executive Chairman, Volans Ventures; co-founder, SustainAbility; co-author, The Power of Unreasonable People

"With stalled international conferences and debates, and with the need for a sustainable economy and ways of enjoying life ever more pressing, this book is a brilliant response. It takes us by the hand and leads us through the ambiguities, the uncertainties and the difficulties and shows us what we can all do. And why we need to do it." – Chris Smith, Chairman, Environment Agency of England and Wales

"A veritable bible for leaders everywhere - business schools take note!' – David Puttnam, film producer and politician

"If life is too short to stuff a mushroom, it certainly isn't long enough to delay action on climate change. Business, government and campaigners alike, The Positive Deviant will give you all you need to become a sustainability leader and do the right thing yourself - straight away and despite the ditherers." – Fiona Reynolds, Director, The National Trust

"This book offers an opportunity...for anyone in or aspiring to a leadership role to get up to speed on essential information very quickly...,and, until there are many more suitable courses available, to design for themselves a journey to sustainability-literate leadership." – PRWeb, September 2010

"This book is a thoughtful, stimulating and timely contribution to currenty thinking on sustainability" – In Touch Magazine

"For anyone aspiring to be sustainability literate positive deviant this is a recommended read. It is full of good practical ideas, tools and techniques grounded in Parkins' lifelong experience in the pursuit of sustainability."Steve Martin, IES
