Moving forward with the Big Picture

This is an amazingly comprehensive book on world problems and the tradional thought patterns causing them. If you ever wondered what people mean by thinking outside the box and coming up with solutions to the problems we all face, this book makes it so clear and is so readable. And these ways of understanding how we think our way into extinction and can think our way right out of it, apply to your daily personal life also. Extremely useful for you personally. Brilliant and a must read.
