“Here are more than seventy big thinkers, each sharing an idea for you to think about as we head into the new year. From bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert to brilliant tech thinker Kevin Kelly, from publisher Tim O’Reilly to radio host Dave Ramsey, there are some important people riffing about important ideas here.”
And each of it’s 82 pages is, indeed, inspiring and thought-provoking, REAL. There are interesting and useful takes on Fear, Dignity, Meaning, Ease, Strengths, Technology, Enough, (Dis)trust, and Sleep, to name a few. Many are mightily therapeutic.
The book also spreads a big dose of generosity…Think of the time and energy and $$ – months of work – that went into making it…
“Now, more than ever, we need to shake things up. Now, more than ever, we need a different way of thinking, a useful way to focus and the energy to turn the game around.”
He also hopes the book can find it’s way into the hands (and minds) of five million people by the simple act of one person giving it to another. Imagine that degree of viral, global gift-giving.
(What Matters Now is a publicity machine in the best possible way: everybody gets something swell…)
