This book has empowered me both as a citizen and as a politician to realize that if you can bring a group of people together, you can get great things done. Coming from the student movement, I kinda already believed that but Peter's book help me look at this through the eyes of a local politician.
Too often governments are trying to come up with the solutions and this book spoke to why that fails BUT also why people keep trying to connect in our continuously online and fractured world.
Some of the reviewers said that this was "dense" but I found it to be the kind of read that you pick up for a while, fill up your brain and put down when full. This book was so good that I wrote notes in it, which for me means its a KEEPER and that I will always be going back to it once in a while to check in.
As an example of how this book changed me, I am now working with a group of teens to get the local skatepark expanded but instead of trying to control the situation or "manage" the teens, I have simply facilitated the process and given them the tools they need along with the assurance that I will support them along the way. They are now flourishing.
It is an inspiring and very important read in an increasingly disconnected (well, connected online) world.

Haven't read it yet. Will have to come back and leave a proper review. At glance though - I am happiest reading Foucault or Slavoj Zizek. Stay tuned for a review... Read morePublished on May 23 2012 by Chanta
