This is a wonderful, thought provoking journey. The authors tie together theories and disciplines across cultures and time periods into a language we can use today.

As I read, I was skeptical about how their insights could develop into everyday practice. I felt the epilogue did an excellent job encapsulating their findings and developing a path for individual pursuit.

As a scientist, this one thin volume has caused me to rethink my perspective on the relationship of all living things that for the past 60 years was smothered and immovable by dogma, religion, and a myopic view of the world. I read the introduction through three times so I could begin to grasp the concept. I didn't want to miss a thought. A keeper, but one that will disturb you as you realize for the past years or your life, you probably had it all wrong. Enjoy and learn.

"Synopsis" by , US
"Synopsis" by , Peter Senge. C. Otto Scharmer. Joseph Jaworski. Betty Sue Flowers. This remarkable group of leaders met in a Cambridge, Massachusetts, living room for a year to discuss the nature of transformational change—how it is brought about, and how it changes people. This book is the result of their wide-ranging conversations, and introduces the idea of “presence”—a concept from nature, that the whole is entirely present in any of its parts–to business. In making this transition, they ask themselves, and the reader, “What question lies at the heart of my work?” and “How can I set aside my narrow viewpoint and understand the larger whole?” Each author shares deeply personal stories about ways in which they made themselves present in the world, and in doing so, became part of the larger whole.

Drawing on a diverse supporting cast of 150 scientists, social leaders, and entrepreneurs including Rupert Sheldrake, Buckminster Fuller, Lao Tzu, and Carl Jung, Presence explains how profound collective change occurs. This astonishing and completely original work will richly reward readers with an understanding of what it means to be an authentic agent of change.
