The Second Curve : Thoughts on Reinventing Society, Paperback / softback Book

The Second Curve : Thoughts on Reinventing Society Paperback / softback


Britain's leading guru looks to the future. Charles Handy is one of the giants of contemporary thought.

His books on management - including Understanding Organizations and Gods of Management - have changed the way we view business.

His work on broader issues and trends - such as Beyond Certainty - has changed the way we view society.

In The Second Curve, Handy builds on a life's work to glimpse into the future and see what challenges and opportunities lie ahead.

He looks at current trends in capitalism and asks whether it is a sustainable system.

He explores the dangers of a society built on credit.

He challenges the myth that remorseless growth is essential.

He even asks whether we should rethink our roles in life - as students, parents, workers and voters - and what the aims of an ideal society of the future should be.

Provocative and thoughtful as ever, he sets out the questions we all need to ask ourselves - and points us in the direction of some of the answers.
