“I took my time reading this, not just to make a pun, but also because there are many, many lessons and/or good points in this book I wanted to sit with for a bit before moving on. Which was beneficial, because the author continually refers back to earlier chapters as examples of how the many wise suggestions work together. All of these changes are meant to effect whole neighborhoods, communities, cities, states, countries and the world. Nowhere in this book does he say that any of this is easy. It all requires a great deal of passion, patience, fortitude and belief in what you are doing to make the kind of societal changes that are discussed in this book. A slow fix requires time, energy and commitment and well as a whole lot of planning and very careful thought. It isn't for the faint of heart, but for those who truly believe in changing things for the better, this book will help fire you up and get you pointed in the right direction. Every journey starts with a single step--perhaps this book can be just that.
