Publisher's Summary

Britain's leading guru looks to the future. Charles Handy is one of the giants of contemporary thought. His books on management - including Understanding Organizations and Gods of Management - have changed the way we view business. His work on broader issues and trends - such as Beyond Certainty - has changed the way we view society.
In The Second Curve, Handy builds on a life's work to glimpse into the future and see what challenges and opportunities lie ahead. He looks at current trends in capitalism and asks whether it is a sustainable system. He explores the dangers of a society built on credit. He challenges the myth that remorseless growth is essential. He even asks whether we should rethink our roles in life – as students, parents, workers, and voters – and what the aims of an ideal society of the future should be.
Provocative and thoughtful as ever, he sets out the questions we all need to ask ourselves - and points us in the direction of some of the answers.

Excellent book of essays

I’ve long been an admirer of Charles Handy’s thinking and this book of fifteen essays shows that Handy, in his 80s now, still has his finger on the pulse of what is and what should be.
Great to listen to on journeys to work but there’s so much in these essays I’m probably going to have to listen again and again to get the fullness from them.

Full of insights

Great listen. Intelligent and witty arguments. I have over a hundred audio books in my library but this is the first review I've ever written. That's how much I liked it.
