Self-Renewal: The Individual and the Innovative Society by John W. Gardner

“This is the most exciting and significant book that I have read in years. The subject is the self-renewal of societies and of individuals—why do some atrophy and decay, while others remain innovative and creative? There is no more vital problem than this, especially for an era of constantly accelerating change such as the present.” (L. S. Stavrianos, Northwestern University – Chicago Daily News)
