I came across this new book published by Niki Harre, a Auckland University Psychology lecturer, late last year.
Here is an excerpt: “I wrote this book for people (like me!) who believe it is worth trying to make a better world in which both our species and the ecological systems we are part of can flourish. We may think the problems humans face are a simple truth and that it is blatantly obvious business as usual won’t work for much longer. But in any human system, it is not just about who is right, it is also about who can win people over. This book contains numerous strategies for inspiring others to join with those of us who are trying to make a difference”.
What does the book cover?
Positive emotions and flow: Encouraging creativity and commitment
Copying: The power of doing and telling
Identity: The role of who we are and where we belong
Morality and cooperation: Making the most of our desire to be good
A self-help guide for sustainability advocates
I’ve just started reading it so will write a review once I have finished reading it.
