Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of Octavia Butler, here is radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help to shape the futures we want. Change is constant. The world, our bodies, and our minds are in a constant state of flux. They are a stream of ever-mutating, emergent patterns. Rather than steel ourselves against such change, Emergent Strategy teaches us to map and assess the swirling structures and to read them as they happen, all the better to shape that which ultimately shapes us, personally and politically. A resolutely materialist spirituality based equally on science and science fiction: a wild feminist and afro-futurist ride!

adrienne maree brown, co-editor of Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction from Social Justice Movements, is a social justice facilitator, healer, and doula living in Detroit.

Intelligent gorgeous inspiring pragmatic necessary

This book is brilliant. It is honest, principled, deep, lovely. You have to be a little patient with the reading of the footnotes - it’s important to the author to acknowledge all the many sources of her thoughts.

nourishment on all levels

in a guide that is equal parts tactical and poetic, adrienne invites us to pause, reflect, and adopt the wondrously collaborative and adaptive strategies that are playing out in nature on all scales around us in the way we move through the world—and shape it as we move through it—as individuals and as organizations.

Perfect pairing with the physical copy!

I almost didn’t purchase this title because I already own and have read the physical copy but I am SO glad I did. Listening to this in adrienne maree brown’s voice transformed intriguing thoughts and practices into poetry. Easily one of my favorite audio recordings of a book I’ve heard.

Life affirming

I’m taking a sabbatical to realign my life’s work with my passion. Adrienne Marie Browns work has helped immensely with the tone and deliberate actions that I am putting forth to further my social justice work. She has given me framework, direction, and pause. Affirming that dedication and patience are a key component in building out a system in which we can thrive. Thank you so much for putting this work together. Incredible read!

Great for organizational strategy

So much to wrap my head around. A much better model for making progress in an org than I’ve seen before.

Will definitely be re-listening to this!

I loved this book and found it so useful as a person leading transformation efforts within a company. The author seamlessly moves between being informative, poetic, personal and systematic, which for me, embodies how it feels to be doing this type of work.

So many thoughts

A thoughtful work. I am better for it. Taking pauses to ponder ideas, suggestions and just to sit with myself. Replaying parts taking notes, I almost felt I was in a one on one session with her. Lots of work and mindful liberation actions.
