Publisher's Summary

Becoming Who We Need to Be is a book about the challenges we face as societies and how the decisions we make as individuals matter in those larger struggles.

How we seek out, filter, and parse knowledge shapes our understanding of ourselves and of the world. How we analyze, organize, and act upon this information influences how well our individual ideas and ideologies scale up to the societal level.

In both developing as individuals and evolving as groups, context matters. This is a book about broadening one's own context, and understanding how personal growth is related to societal wellbeing.

Excellent book on what direction we could go as a people if we refuse to let governments ruin things!

I greatly enjoyed how the book flowed from beginning to end. It was a complicated set of topics that were well presented.

Thoroughly thought provoking

Colin is a brilliant man, and this is a good example of his polymath ways.

Fantastic read/listen

Every bit as entertaining and thought provoking as Colin Wright's podcast, "Let's Know Things". Loved every minute!

A great book - should be listened to by everyone!

The book is absolutely brilliant, very similar to the podcast the author hosts - filled with great, thought-provoking questions. I think it's a book that everyone should read/listen to - it will make you want to challenge your worldviews and grow as a person. Having Colin narrate it has made the book even better. The one downside of it is that it's 'only' 7 hours long - I would happily keep listening for at least another 7 (or 14..)!
