THE TURNING POINT- Creating Resilience in a Time of Extremes by Gregg Braden

There is no doubt that we live in times of extremes, just look at our recent weather, what is happening around the world, in our jobs, health and so on. Changes seem to be coming along rapidly so how do we cope with these changing ways? In this book the author looks at what is causing the extremes in our world and how to make life better for ourselves and our families. In preparing for the unknown, important choices need to be made and how we think is the key to the way we deal with the needs of the emerging world. The book states facts and figures regarding matters such as climate change, energy & resources, money, population growth and trends in the “Big Picture”. These are events which need to be recognised, solutions found and the issues resolved. Before a tipping point is reached (point of no return), turning points (new forces which change the way we address our course of events) can arise to help us meet the challenges we face. The author points out that positive transformation (beginning with us) needs resilience on a personal, local community and global level, in order to not only adapt but to rebound as we learn to be flexible through these shifts. Here is a book covering important matters relevant to us all. Remember the saying “There is nothing permanent except change”.turning
