Clarity, Creativity and Courage for the World We Really Want.
Watch a personal introduction by author, Frances Moore Lappe
My book intent is to enable us to see people in all walks of life penetrating the spiral of despair and reversing it with new ideas, innovation and courage.
Lappe’s unique take and laser-like logic (Booklist) invite readers to try on a new, invigorating way of seeing our world. With her characteristic boldness (The Nation), she takes on a set of disempowering ideas driving our economic and ecological crises, challenging us to rethink the meaning of power, democracy, and hope itself. In her punchy, no-holds-barred style, Lappe weaves together fresh insights, startling facts, and stirring vignettes of regular people pursuing ingenuous solutions. My book’s intent, Lappe writes, is to enable us to see what is happening all around us but is still invisible to most of us — people in all walks of life penetrating the spiral of despair and reversing it with new ideas, innovation and courage. The book concludes with reflection questions that are perfect for book groups. Lappe’s crystalline assessments virtually leap off the page . . . [a] source of inspiration. (Booklist) Out of the box.
