Stilger's lifetime of work in community development, leadership and emergent systems comes together powerfully in this wisdom-packed book. And not a moment too soon! We're all facing inumerable system breakdowns, maybe not as disastrous for the Fukushima and surrounding communities, but important nevertheless as the future of our own communities becomes more and more tenuous and uncertain. AfterNow might just be a new genre of literature, the practical kind of guidance that most of us need and want in this era of chaos. Buy it. Read it. Pass it forward!
