ABOUT THE BOOK:
Worldchanging: A User's Guide for the 21st Century is a 608-page 
compendium of the most innovative solutions, ideas and inventions for 
building a livable, prosperous future, written by more than sixty noted 
writers and thinkers, with a forward from Al Gore and an introduction 
by Bruce Sterling.

 From consumer consciousness to a new vision for industry; non-toxic 
homes to refugee shelters; microfinance to effective philanthropy; 
socially responsible investing to starting a green business; citizen 
media to human rights; ecological economics to climate change, we think 
this is the most comprehensive, cutting-edge overview to date of what's 
possible in the near future - if we decide to make it so.  For more 
information, and to purchase the book, please visit:
