With this simple declaration, Margaret Wheatley proposes that citizens band together with their colleagues and friends to create the solutions for social change, both locally and globally, that are so badly needed. Such change will not come from governments or corporations but from the ageless process of thinking together in conversation. Turning to One Another encourages this process.

    " Awesome reflections, mediations and of course would be great for courageous conversations.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lia | 6/26/2013

    " Full of great thoughts about how talking to each other can change the world. Unfortunately, it's not a very compelling read. It loses momentum frequently. Thus, though it is an enjoyable book for the most part, it has been returned to the shelf for now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elena Aguilar | 5/11/2013

    " This is one of those that I read over and over, that I share pieces of with those I love. her prose and proposals are so simple and profound. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin Cox | 3/16/2013

    " Meg Wheatley translates philosophical concepts into action items to create community and meaning. Gives a starting point to build that "third place" interaction that weaves us together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Yackley | 12/29/2012

    " Wheatley--ever the idealist--still manages to inspire me to pursue community rather than structures as my core organizing principle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Roberts | 11/12/2011

    " Beautifully and thoughtfully written. Why can't we just all get along... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendra | 9/6/2011

    " Great book for in depth conversation structure to understand our mindset and others in building a tighter team. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elsa | 3/29/2011

    " The premise of this book is lovely -- but the actual conversations leave something to be desired. I wonder if it's simply that we don't know how to have the kind of conversations that Wheatley is suggesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 8/9/2010

    " Great little book that demonstrates how the simple act of having a conversation can help bring about a more peaceful world "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 RandomAnthony | 1/2/2010

    " Somewhat interesting organizational studies text...not a ton of meat to it, you can read it in an hour, but still more useful than most of the bulls--t I read when getting my leadership degree. A very personal, meditative take on human interaction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy Westover | 2/5/2009

    " It is time to restore hope and this time we must take action with our hope! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 9/4/2008

    " I really enjoyed this book. It has very astute observations about issues that teachers currently face in public schools. It doesn't offer solutions because that is not its purpose. Its purpose is to empower teachers to solve their own problems through reflection, conversation and action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brit Hanson | 8/23/2008

    " This book has been a fabulous resource in my community organizing work. Meg Wheatley is a treasure; she invites the read to step back from the complication that is problem-solving and consider an alternate route. Great book -- the title is spot on. "
