We're challenged at this critical moment in history to change our thoughts and behavior in significant ways. What we don't know sometimes is exactly what to do and how to do it. That's why I love The Sustainable World Sourcebook: it tells us everything we need to know to create a healthier, more just and more peaceful world. It's a guidebook for going from unaware consumer to passionate world citizen.

A box of the Sourcebooks just arrived today..and it is just beautiful!! I really like how you all wove the numerous articles written by various people together...to create a greater synthesis...rather than individual names by individual articles. Really and truly Grand work!!!
