WHOLE EARTH DISCIPLINE honored

My recent book has been selected as one of 25 books “that educate, inspire, and drive change” by The New Earth Archive (“Inspiring student-led innovation and solutions for the future”). 

I like the selection criteria:

Criteria below are what we determined should be used in selecting the top books for each year’s New Earth Archive Booklist.

Books that speak directly to students and young adults; ones that are both informative and passionate enough to capture and hold attention in a fast-paced world full of distractions.

Powerful enough to change the reader’s mind about these issues, encourage new perspectives, and promote acceptance of alternate or controversial ideas.

Provocative and motivational: they have to genuinely drive readers to want to change the world.

Inspiring and positive, and offer solutions that adequately address the scale of the issues at stake.

Recent (within the past 10-15 years) and still relevant to our world’s rapidly changing conditions.

Decades-big ideas with worldwide scope. To build the most thorough knowledge-base about the issues that confront us today, we need to expose students to information spanning everything from the environment, the economy, people, and politics. Additionally, we consider it of paramount importance to include knowledge about the latest scientific revelations in understanding the universe, consciousness, and the fundamental principles of human nature.

Um.  That book BETTERNESS has nothing to do with my book.
 
+Stewart Brand Ah sorry, a misunderstanding on my part. I only meant to suggest it as a book that also inspires solutions for the future. Sorry to have misplaced it here. For what its worth, I have added your book to my reading queue too :)
