How Soon is Now?gives us the context we need to understand the chaos and turbulence of our times. Sting Here we are, humanity, caught in the moment between devolution and conscious evolution by choice, not chance. Daniel Pinchbeck's new book takes us to this exact inflection point and revealsin remarkable clarity and brilliance, We Do Know What To Do, in almost every field from spiritual to social to environmental innovations arising everywhere. Barbara Marx Hubbard, author, Conscious Evolution Daniel Pinchbeck has emerged as a rational and clear voice of hope for a new post-capitalist future, offering alternatives to hack democracy for a better society. Jefferson Hack, CEO and Founder, Dazed & Confused I recommend this book to anyone who is trying to make sense of climate change within a bigger picture that includes the evolution of civilization and consciousness. Charles Eisenstein, author, Sacred Economics How Soon Is Now offers a spiritually driven approach to global economic and ecological crisis With dangerous and admirable honesty, Pinchbeck tests his deepest held assumptions and judges his life choices in a crucible of self-doubt. It's at once an initiation for himself, and an invitation for us to ask these same sorts of questions of ourselves as individuals and a society. Doug Rushkoff, author, Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus 'Provides deep insight into the essential issues of our time ... could spark the revolution of consciousness that is the revolution not just of thinking, but of acting. - Ervin Laszlo, Bestselling Author and Philosopher 'Daniel Pinchbeck s life is the hero s journey. Like Homer s Odyssey, How Soon Is Now is a song of redemption for a world torn apart by the monsters of our own creation. We ve dreamed a world that is consuming itself into extinction. Pinchbeck offers us a new dream and in doing so takes us on a powerful, magical voyage into balance and sanity.' - John Perkins, New York Times Bestselling Author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman"
