A conversational, explorative, non-linear journey of the book’s title, a concept Whelan defines as “how we intentionally change in ways that grow our capacity to embody the insightful and liberated worlds we long for.” He explains at the outset that the book is meant to be perused, returned to, and jumped around more than once. There are fragments, reflections, thought experiments exercises, dialogues, assessments, facilitations—even a playlist. It’s a book for people interested in radical change who are willing to think expansively about what the future could look like or need help doing that kind of thinking.
