Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A radical approach to social engagement We live in an environment that is ever-politicized, -polarized and -fragmenting. It is an environment in which people retreat from one another and circle the wagons with like-minded folk, preferring to exist in the comfort of echo chambers, rather than engage openly and honestly with the seeming dissonance so as to build a better society for all. As Weitzner says in the introduction to Fifteen Paths: "Looking at current realities, we've become excellent at broadcasting, but receiving has perhaps become a lost skill." Take a look at any social media and you'll understand how perfectly the above sums up our current social malaise. Fifteen Paths is a fascinating and provoking read, using conversations with iconic artists (from musicians to clowns and shamans) to provide a radical approach to re-discovering the path to wisdom. Weitzner demonstrates that if we use our creative, imaginative skills, rather than arguing into the void, we can connect and converse in a healthy and productive manner. Fifteen Paths is a timely book that sharply considers what is going wrong with our society - on both extremes of the divide - and provides hope for a way forward. This is a must read for anyone who has wondered how we've strayed so far and what we must do to, as individuals and as a society, to re-connect.
