Our ways of thinking and making decisions have changed little since we lived in agricultural and industrial societies, but the problems we now need to solve are entirely different. It requires a revolution in thinking and behavior to meet the challenges that now face us and to avoid disaster we need a Total Rethink."

McCourt lays out the reality of the dangerous situation we find ourselves in and offers viable solutions to empower everyone, from business people, to politicians, educators and young entrepreneurs just starting out. He inspires solutions to repair the damage already done and shares how best to prepare for the dramatic changes still to come.
