5.0 out of 5 stars Visionary, Smart, Loaded with New Information and a Great Read, August 19, 2009
This review is from: Threshold: The Crisis of Western Culture (Hardcover)
It is nice to know that some things in this world are reliable and predictable. Books by Thom Hartmann fall into that category. This book is smart, loaded with new information and as with most of Thom's books, visionary, seeing both the forest AND the trees. He identifies some of the biggest problems we are facing in what we do and how we think... and he provides concrete solutions-- not necessarily easy though.

His discussion on the evolution of freedom is excellent.

His discussion of how we are connected is fascinating and the new info on how an ancient connection to nature is healing autoimmune diseases is incredible.

Thom explains why CEOs of the biggest companies are psychopaths. It makes a lot of sense.

If we're going to change this planet and save humankind, we need to change our ways of thinking and seeing. Hartmann delivers a lucid, enlightening, enjoyable read that gets to the heart of the matter. As always, Hartmann weaves in new facts and an incredible access to history and historical anecdotes that puts new ideas into historical context.

I wish you would have elaborated a bit more on the psychopath comment. I have long suspected that western civilization is schizophrenic is that we philosophically espouse grand ideas of equality but economic rewards and respect goes to psychopaths. That seems to lead to inevitable chaos and crisis, at least as long as it is unconscious.
