"I've just finished reading excerpts from your book online, and I'm definitely getting myself a copy of it this weekend and will read it.
It speaks to who I am SO much. THANK you for writing this book. I've thought that I was crazy at times... Like, am I the only person I know who really cares? Not just about arguing or complaining but about solutions, and the long term future? What about thinking in a way that actually progresses things? About the future, not just the fun today! I was thinking am I the only one frustrated that kids are growing up watching the Kardashians and dumbed down reality TV? Don't get me wrong, entertainment is all good, but can't there be intelligent, quality entertainment that leaves people uplifted and inspired - and actually more enlightened? Do we have to have a media that plays on fear and lack and scarcity and paints a picture of a bleak world, rather than focusing on the abundance that we have on this planet and how we can harness our resources for progress?! Am I the only perturbed by group think? Clearly not! So, I'm not crazy! Thank you!
I can't wait to read the rest.
