The 21st Century Revolution – A Call to Greatness is the sixth book by 82-year-old former management development consultant Bruce Nixon.

According to the book, we are in the middle of a scientific and technological revolution that will transform our lives, our work and the world as we know it. We are also in the midst of an economic and political revolution.

We face the biggest challenges in our history, and technology will not help unless we act on the urgent need to tackle climate chaos, conserve a living planet, resolve economic inequality, break entrenched power structures, and learn to resolve conflict without violence.

The book, which has attracted rave reviews from figures in the fields of economics, global justice and electoral reform, grew out of conversations Bruce had with people at Berhamsted Market about their concerns, while he was manning the Transition Town Berkhamsted stall.

Bruce said: “People mustn’t think there’s nothing they can do. Basically, it’s a ‘cheer up’ book. There’s a lot we can do.”

The 21st Century Revolution is available from Waterstones Berkhamsted.
