Review by Small Press Bookwatch

The Next Evolution: A Blueprint For Transforming The Planet by Jack Reed is an original work of vision which encompasses worldwide ecological, political, economic, and cultural realities.

What the readers are offered is quite literally, a prescription that will resolve contemporary social, economic, political, environmental, economic, and social issue concerns that otherwise will threaten the very continuance of humankind on planet Earth.

Book Summary

As we know, the world faces many challenges at the start of the millennium. These problems are now so severe and so interconnected that to try to solve any one of them within our present model of living is at best a Band-Aid approach. As a result, the projections are that our quality of life will greatly diminish in the next few decades. Knowing this, many authors have written many books advancing their theories about what can be done. Unfortunately, few, if any, of these books step out of the box and go far enough to really address the changes that have to be made.

The Next Evolution: A Blueprint for Transforming the Planet asks and answers, in a simple and practical way, the question: How can we start making the planet work for everyone? This book challenges the viability of our every-person-for-themselves approach to living that has been so ingrained through thousands of years of practice that most people have never even conceived of an alternative approach—especially one that would include our entire planet.
