The world needs to change.
We have unleashed an ecological mega-crisis which is threatening the future of life on Earth. The actions we take over the next decade are critical. They will determine the destiny of our descendants and the fate of our world.
Is it too late?
How Soon Is Now presents a compelling manifesto for personal and planetary change. It proposes a revolutionary new narrative for a unified social movement. Through global cooperation, we can face this collective threat ecologically, socially, politically and spiritually. We can launch a new operating system for human society based on regenerative principles.
The choice is ours.
Accepting this crisis as our initiation, we can choose to evolve to the next level of consciousness as a species. We can do more than survive: we can thrive.

Horrible word soup
Wow, what a huge waste of time! I stopped when the lizard overlords entered the picture, but it took a lot of good will to get even there.

This narrator's pronunciations are so strange! The writing is pretty dense, so the weird pronunciations were kind of distracting and made the book hard to follow at times. The way he says "compost" is really weird!! And he mispronounces household names, like the Koch brothers. Overall the book left me feeling unsettled and pessimistic, offering little realistic hope for the future. 4 stars!

A great reframing of the ecological collapse
Daniel Pinchbeck's notion that the ordeal that is the environmental crisis is humanity's collective initiation journey to an entirely new way of being is a game changer — this is an opportunity for rebirth and redemption — and an idea I've not seen/heard anywhere else. For me it stacks up. Sure it's a stretch, a massive stretch. But all other analyses of what's happening and why seem to come up short in the end because they fail to address the deep underlying causes beyond the facts of what we're doing. We're sick but we don't know why. And like the addict that needs to hit bottom before the revelation, we've got some tough times ahead. To counter the unavoidable pessimism, there's plenty of good news about the changes already underway to keep you going. There's reason to be optimistic and the future looks at least "interesting" if little like the world we now live in — if we can get there. Well-researched and well-written, I went back and forth between audio and book partly to escape the phony narration. Highly recommended.
