Sue Baker's view...

On our own, can we make a difference? Of all six books, this was the one I was drawn to most, the examples of change, one person at a time, are inspiring and thought-provoking. John-Paul Flintoff also looks at the wider picture showing people who are working at reconciliation and pushing for major changes, giving us some hope for the future.

Synopsis

How to Change the World by John-Paul Flintoff, School of Life

We all want to live in a better world, but sometimes it feels that we lack the ability or influence to make a difference. John-Paul Flintoff offers a powerful reminder that through the generations, society has been transformed by the actions of individuals who understood that if they didn't like something, they could change it. Combining fresh new insights from history, politics and modern culture, this book will give you a sense of what might just be possible, as well as the inspiration and the courage you need to go about improving and changing the world we live in. One in the new series of books from The School of Life, launched May 2012: How to Stay Sane by Philippa Perry How to Find Fulfilling Work by Roman Krznaric How to Worry Less About Money by John Armstrong How to Change the World by John-Paul Flintoff How to Thrive in the Digital Age by Tom Chatfield How to Think More About Sex by Alain de Botton
