Reviews
"A beautiful journey in the slow lane, an alternative to the autocratic and divisive forms of leadership that respond to complex challenges by opting for the kind of quick fixes that are doomed to fail."
--Dr. Philip G. Zimbardo, psychologist and New York Times bestselling author of The Lucifer Effect and coauthor of The Time Paradox and The Time Cure

"A must-read for anyone dedicated to sustaining real, positive change on every level."
--Darren Walker, President, Ford Foundation

"Sascha Haselmayer's book captures our emergent epoch. But instead of seeing catastrophe, he opens up a world of possibilities, a world of forgotten options."
--Saskia Sassen, Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology, Columbia University
