Review:

"Jonathon Porritt's book dreams big, as if our future depends on it. And it does."―Richard Branson

"The futuristic look in The World We Made is a powerful reminder of the many global challenges we must address today if we want to create a sustainable and equitable planet in the near future. As a business leader, I am evermore convinced after reading The World We Made that building a sustainable future urgently requires collaboration, technological innovation, and a shift to sustainable lifestyles being commonplace, but above all it needs leadership."―Kees Kruythoff, president of Unilever North America

"Revealing the gift in the arms of the problem, Jonathon Porritt beautifully shows how your applied hope, fearless action, and relentless patience can turn the world we inhabit into the world we envision."―Amory Lovins, Founder and Chief Scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute

"Jonathon Porritt has, not for the first time, found both the facts and the spirit required for imagining a working future."―Bill McKibben, author of Oil and Honey: The Education of an Unlikely Activist

"In a world where doom and gloom surrounds us everywhere, Jonathon Porritt shows us that another future is possible? Jonathon is arguably more responsible for helping to create that positive future than anyone I know."―Jeffrey Hollender, Co-founder of Seventh Generation and Co-chair of Greenpeace US

"An optimistic story that depicts a world where things went right."―FastCoExist.com
