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.
Relevant to our accelerated technological era. Colin is great at including multiple perspectives in his writings.
Every bit as entertaining and thought provoking as Colin Wright's podcast, "Let's Know Things". Loved every minute!
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..)!
