by John Renesch
2013 GRAND PRIZE WINNER FOR NON-FICTION by Next Generation Indie Book Awards
It is not too late to create the future we all say we want for our children and our children’s children—a future that is environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just. The Great Growing Up projects this vision and shows a way for generating this global reality. It’s time to grow up and assume a more mature responsibility toward each other and our planet.
“John Renesch is not only a smart man, but also a wise one. The Great Growing Up offers a conscious choice for the kind of future we want to create and the role we each want to play in bringing it about. Don’t just read this book—do it!” —Alan M. Webber, cofounder, Fast Company magazine
“With so many of us struggling, we all need a vision of hope that looks at life, business and the dark side of human behavior right in the eye. That’s what John Renesch does in this provocative, comprehensive guide to the future—and our role in constructing it.” —Patricia Aburdene, author, Megatrends 2010: The Rise of Conscious Capitalism
“An inspiring, visionary book detailing both the dangers and the opportunities before us, John Renesch persuasively shows how, despite the turmoil of our times, we can collectively rise to the occasion and create the society that we all know in our hearts is possible.” —Peter Russell, author of The Global Brain, Waking Up in Time, and other books
“John Renesch, renowned futurist and prolific author, has written a deeply provocative book to inspire the evolution of a new humanity. The Great Growing Up brilliantly captures the critical importance of the present moment and outlines a trajectory for achieving a mature, peaceful future for all. John’s roadmap to our collective future is clear, compelling, and transformative. His new book is important and empowering. I highly recommend it.” —Lynne Twist, co-founder, The Pachamama Alliance
