Publisher's Summary

Blessed Unrest tells the story of a worldwide movement that is largely unseen by politicians or the media. Hawken, an environmentalist and author, has spent more than a decade researching organizations dedicated to restoring the environment and fostering social justice. From billion-dollar nonprofit organizations to single-person causes, these organizations collectively comprise the largest movement on earth. This is a movement that has no name, leader, or location, but it is in every city, town, and culture. It is organizing from the bottom up and is emerging as an extraordinary and creative expression of people's needs worldwide.

    "interesting"

    thoroughly lays out the fundamental components and stratagies that comprise a mass movement. It was well written with many examples from real world senator and organizations.

    Story
    "Should be required reading"

    I should have said "required reading our listening"

    This book creates a framework, by which those who seek change can see hope and those who dismiss the movement for change can see it as both reasonable and possible.
