A new world is emerging before our eyes, while the unsustainable world of the past struggles to continue. Both worlds reflect the beliefs of our past. Both exist - but only for now. Which world do you choose? Best-selling author and visionary scientist Gregg Braden suggests that the hottest issues that divide us as families, nations, and civilizations-seemingly separate concerns such as war, terror, abortion, suicide, genocide, the death penalty, poverty, economic collapse, and nuclear war-are actually related. They all stem from the false assumptions of an outdated science, assumptions that have brought us to the brink of disaster and the loss of all that we cherish as a civilization.

The overall tone of the book was upbeat and not quite as pessimistic as some of the subject matter would have indicated.
That there is a movement towards sustainable solutions for our planetary dilemma without the shrill alarmists and their anti-everything attitudes.
Clear and concise.
The book was anticlimactic. To go through the reams of information provided and then suggest the best solution is to hand over the problem to a world government body was hard to stomach. I mean, these are the same guys that created this state of affairs. Greg should have spent a little more time on that one.
So many interesting and logical insights in to the world we live in today, where we're from and where we're headed. A must read for anyone who's interested in sustainability too.
Absolutely a good book with new and interesting ideas that make sense in the world that we live in and our origins. Recommended!
"Much more than it looks"
This isn't just a new age Gregg Braden book - it has so much more information in it than is apparent from the title. I have since bought the printed version as I want to reread some sections and need to physically read them rather than listen to them.
I found the scientific information absolutely fascinating. I did enjoy the first section more than the second section but please read both and form your own opinion.
Gregg Braden is such a good reader and he reads his own work beautifully.
