Thinking in Systems: A Primer
  • MundusVultDecipiMundusVultDecipi November 2011 +1 -1
    By: Donella H. Meadows
    Edited By: Diana Wright
    Sustainability Institute

    "Thinking in Systems is required reading for anyone hoping to run a successful company, community, or country. Learning how to think in systems is now part of change-agent literacy. And this is the best book of its kind."
    -Hunter Lovins, founder and President,
    Natural Capital Solutions and co-author of Natural
    Capitalism: Creating the Next Industrial Revolution

    "When I read Thinking in Systems I am reminded of the enormity of the gap between systemic thinkers and policy makers. If this book helps narrow the gap, it will be Dana's greatest contribution."
    -Lester Brown, founder and President

    "Dana Meadows was one of the smartest people I ever knew, able to figure out the sensible answer to almost any problem. This book explains how she thought, and hence is of immense value to those of us who often wonder what she'd make of some new problem. A classic."
    -Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy
