Dave lives in Harmony Village Cohousing Community in Golden, Colorado -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- Creating a New Normal A TRILOGY OF BOOKS BY DAVID WANN Published January 2011 http://www.davewann.com We're following the instructions our compulsive culture provides, but they are no longer relevant. It's time to reprogram the software that shapes our way of life. THE NEW NORMAL: AN AGENDA FOR RESPONSIBLE LIVING explores 33 collective, high-leverage actions that will make our lives more sensible and less selfish. In the emerging, post-Industrial Revolution era, production and consumption will no longer dominate our way of life. Instead we will we keep ourselves connected and healthy with the restoration of nature, time affluence, social ties, and green design. "The new normal agenda is built on convincing statistical and anecdotal information. Powerful, grounded reading for the challenges of 21st-century living, offering hope in an age of pessimism." - Kirkus Review SIMPLE PROSPERITY: FINDING REAL WEALTH IN A SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE How to find health and wellness, not just wealth and "hellness." 17 forms of non-material wealth worth far more than money. "If ever there was a right book at the right time, Simple Prosperity is it." - Lester Brown, author Plan B 4.0 "Simple Prosperity reads like a well-loved novel, engaging and educational." - Jill Cloutier, Producer, Sustainable World Radio, KCSB AFFLUENZA: THE ALL-CONSUMING EPIDEMIC Based on two PBS specials about over-consumption, this bestselling book, now in nine languages, unmasks and explores the symptoms of a socially addictive disease that is running rampant through the world. Individuals, families, communities, culture, and the environment are already infected. But there are known cures, and we need to use them, quickly! "The way to end a nightmare is to wake up, and this book is an alarm clock."- Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism "Affluenza has easily passed the test of time and become an American classic, the book that raised our crisis of consumption to national awareness." - Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature __________________________________________ They say that even after we see the light we won't make necessary changes until we also feel the heat. That convergence is here and the Change is coming, ready or not. As the cover of The New Normal suggests, "Let's work together to keep the planet healthy." __________________________________________ For those in the Denver-Boulder area, I'm introducing The New Normal at the Boulder Bookstore on January 18th at 7:30 (303.447.2074), and at the Tattered Cover Lodo bookstore (303.436.1070) on February 10. Join me - let's talk about how levers like redefining the words "success" and "progress" can stimulate world-changing policies, designs, and behaviors.
