Description: 

Willis Harman (1918-1997), is considered one of the most influential thinkers of the second half of the 20th Century. Revisiting his 1990's writings - like An Incomplete Guide to the Future, or Creative Work - the reader will discover how he clearly defined the problems we are facing today, and what we need to do to solve them.

In 1995, during our last walking conversation, Willis encouraged me to explore the Internet. "You enjoy connecting people", he told me, "I suspect that with this new tool you could become a matchmaker on steroids". ~ Sergio Lub, Favors.org Designer, oldest active Social Network.

"Willis was a shining example of servant leadership. His heart and his intellect were balanced in ways that touched people from many walks of life. He was also able to get things done by preparing the ground before a meeting that might be contentious, helping to seed a positive outcome. His expansive curiosity and discerning mind were a great inspiration." ~ Marilyn Schlitz, author and former IONS President - MarilynSchlitz.com
