Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

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 and The Second Curve - has changed the way we view society.

In his new book, Handy builds on a life's work to glimpse into the future and see what challenges and opportunities the next generation faces. How will people cope with change in a world where the old certainties no longer apply? What goals will and should they set themselves? How will they find purpose and fulfillment in their lives? Clear-eyed and optimistic by turns, he sets out the questions that everyone needs to ask themselves and points us in the direction of the answers.

Wonderfull insights, fantastically narrated.

A must read/listen. As a 31 year old who is a little lost in life, the thoughts in this book from Charles Handy gave me a quiet sense of peace from concern and optimistic direction.
