Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity and Courage in a World Gone Mad
Frances Moore Lappe
Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity and Courage in a World Gone Mad is a little book with a big message. Frances Moore Lappé — author of sixteen books, including three-million-copy bestseller Diet for a Small Planet — distills her world-spanning experience and wisdom in a conversational yet hard-hitting style. Getting a Grip is a rare “a-ha” book that flouts conventional right-versus-left divisions and affirms readers’ basic sanity — their intuition that it is possible to stop grasping at straws and to grasp instead the real roots of today’s crises, from hunger and poverty to climate change and terrorism. Getting a Grip leaves readers feeling liberated and courageous.
"Getting a Grip is not an ordinary book: it’s more like a new pair of glasses, allowing you to see everything around you with greater clarity. Suddenly the world is more comprehensible, more manageable, even more beautiful. You won’t want to take them off."
