A relevant, timely, and engrossing book. Bob Stilger has a gift for observing, asking questions, reflecting and synthesizing information and experiences. While this volume seems to represent an entire life's work, I'm certain that Bob still has many more lives and communities to touch. His work in Japan before and after the disasters of 3.11 offer wisdom, hope and a practical guide to surviving and thriving in our rapidly changing world. In just a few short weeks, After Now has become a trusted resource guide and reference. A remarkable blend of heart, head and honesty that reads like a powerful, gentle, engaging conversation.
