CYGNUS REVIEW (December 2012): "This beautifully illustrated and inspiring book will make a fantastic gift for anyone who cares about releasing the full potential of human beings and of our planet. Mark's wise words and meditations encourage new hope in us and enable us to release ourselves from past distress and obstacles so that our natural genius is freed to co-create a new beginning: a future bright with what we long for, and not tarnished by what we don't. WATERSTONES BOOKSELLER REVIEW: "Thought-provoking and far-reaching, this book by turns will cause the reader to be inspired, be meditative, be thrilled, be challenged and ultimately be moved by the kind of questions and considerations that face all of us today. Take it in small doses, an essay or a piece of poetry at a time, for the author is here bringing up issues that deserve more than a shallow read. The kind of book to leave out on the coffee table so that your friends can share in the dialogue that is bound to be provoked." FEATURE EDITOR, TIMES group North London: "Courting the Future is a series of 26 essays that offer an extraordinary insight into the future by Mark Ballabon, a writer and natural philosopher from Potters Bar. Designed for all those who instinctively feel that the future that is coming is different to that suggested by our current world of economic, social and moral free-fall. Courting the Future is a philosophical yet practical guide that aims to help you start thinking in completely new ways about the future. Moving through such subjects as 'why worry?', 'why nothing satisfies', 'transforming conflict' and 'humility', the book captures people's inherent search for meaning and purpose in their lives."
