The first book in the series looks at some of the most pressing and topical issues affecting the world today, from the clash of religions and cultures in a globalized world to the growing dominance of technology. Co-written with renowned social thinker and philosopher Ken Wilber the book sets the scene for debating the key challenges facing current and future generations, and sets possible agendas for how leaders, and potential leaders, can solve challenges through the wise application of multi-tiered multi-channel, multi-organizational intervention and lead in a highly developed, enlightened & selfless way.

Ambitious in scope, yet still pragmatic, this book is thought provoking, inspiring , fun (and perhaps controversial) - Nick Dalton
It is richly nuanced and warmly encourages more compassion and wisdom to emerge in all stakeholders. Highly recommended! - Gerry B
Thought provoking book that shines light onto why we are failing to solve so many of the world's most challenging problems and offers a potentially wiser way forward.
Genius book! It has helped me tremendously figure out how to approach problem-solving with the challenges that this century has presented to us. Thank you !
One of the most important books for our generation. We are increasingly engulfed by our complex world and the difficult challenges that complexity and volatility presents. If we don't take a step back and look at our world through a different set of lenses how can we hope to navigate a successful course for ourselves and for future generations? I read this book and it gave me inspiration and hope that collectively we can find a way to accurately diagnose wicked problems and so land on the right answers to build a better future.
