Second Curve, The
Britain’s leading guru looks to the future.
Charles Handy is one of the giants of contemporary thought. His books on management ? including Understanding Organizations and Gods of Management ? have changed the way we view business. His work on broader issues and trends ? such as Beyond Certainty ? has changed the way we view society.
In The Second Curve, Handy builds on a life’s work to glimpse into the future and see what challenges and opportunities lie ahead. He looks at current trends in capitalism and asks whether it is a sustainable system. He explores the dangers of a society built on credit. He challenges the myth that remorseless growth is essential. He even asks whether we should rethink our roles in life ? as students, parents, workers and voters ? and what the aims of an ideal society of the future should be.
Provocative and thoughtful as ever, he sets out the questions we all need to ask ourselves ? and points us in the direction of some of the answers.
