Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Business writer and thinker Umair Haque minces no words when he declares, "The corporation as you know it is obsolete." Betterness argues that we're entering a new era. Say goodbye to the industrial-age business mentality which seeks financial returns for shareholders above all else. The problem with a single-minded obsession with short-term financial profits is that it often harms communities, nature, and future generations. Haque argues that such a pursuit also leads to the destruction of "higher-order wealth"--the social, intellectual, and emotional capital that fulfills our lives. Businesses, he says, can pursue financial capital and the other kinds of capital that fuel human potential. Consumers are beginning to demand things that make them feel relationally, spiritually, physically, and creatively fulfilled. The business of "betterness" inspires an authentically good life, elevates and enlightens us, and increases our human potential. Haque's writing is exciting, motivating, and infectious. Yet it's also practical. He examines a handful of companies that focus on building human potential and nurturing our collective welfare, and he shows how they are doing it. For business leaders he offers concrete steps to begin a transformation from within. The question is, are we ready "to become the dauntless authors of our destinies again?" --Paul Diamond
