Reviews

"This book challenges the conventional wisdom about what you and I can do as citizens to shape our future. It offers concrete examples of what citizens can do and have done by drawing on resources in their families and communities."
--David Mathews, President, Kettering Foundation

"This book is the basis for health and happiness in any society. A must-read."
--Quentin Young, Chairman, Health and Medicine Policy Research Group, and former President, American Public Health Association "'What we need is here.' That line from a Wendell Berry poem sums up the theme that runs through this vital and timely book. This book is a treasure. And it can help us recover the treasures hidden in plain sight within and among us, renewing ourselves and our democracy as we go."
--Parker J. Palmer, founder of the Center for Courage and Renewal and author of A Hidden Wholeness, Let Your Life Speak, and The Courage to Teach

--Jim Diers, former Director, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, and author of Neighbor Power
