We have reached a turning point in our development as a species. In the coming decades we face significant global challenges in terms of climate change, biodiversity, food and water resources and violent extremism. At the local level, these seem like crazy times, with the speed of change accelerating faster than ever.

In rEvolution, bestselling author Bill Lucas suggests some of the ways we can all succeed in today’s complex world. 150 years after Charles Darwin invented the concept of natural selection, Bill argues that the rules of evolution are changing. To thrive in our current crazy world we need a new kind of ‘mind-ware’. Specifically we need to develop our adaptive intelligence.

Drawing on new and emerging sciences and using approaches previously applied in other domains, this book describes some of the practical steps you can take at home, at school, in the workplace and in the wider community to ensure that you can constantly adapt to new circumstances.

Bill’s analysis, optimism and suggestions for practical learning make this an essential addition to the bookshelf of all thoughtful questioning members of the species!

rEvolution was named as category winner for Innovation & Entrepreneurship at the CMI Management Book of the Year Awards, hosted by the British Library.

The competition seeks to uncover the UK’s best books on management and leadership. Professor Cary Cooper, a workplace psychologist based at the University of Lancaster, and one of the competition judges added: “I found this book the most interesting to read. Change is both an interesting and hugely applicable topic for a management text in the current climate.”
