We have a choice: Breakdown or Breakthrough.
 
In The Chaos Point revered author and systems theorist Ervin Laszlo tells us that we are at a critical juncture in history, a 'decision-window' where we face both the danger of global collapse and the opportunity of worldwide renewal.
 
According to Laszlo we have six to seven years to head off unsustainable trends that would lead to a 'tipping point' beyond which there is no turning back. After this tipping point we either evolve to a safer, more sustainable world, or the social, economic and ecological systems that frame our life break down. This is the Chaos Point, but this need not be the end of the world, only the end of a phase of the world beyond which a new world could dawn. In today's decision-window we have a unique chance of creating that new world and this pioneering book tells us what healing and renewal means, and how each of us can help in achieving it.
