Evolution's Edge: The Coming Collapse and Transformation of Our World by Graeme Taylor has won GOLD in the Independent Publisher's (IPPY) Book Outstanding Book of the Year Awards in the category "Most Likely to Save the Planet". Evolution's Edge was specially selected from over 4000 regular entries because it "exhibits the courage and creativity necessary to take chances, break new ground, and bring about change, not only to the world of publishing, but to our society."

Evolution's Edge explains not only why the collapse of our destructive global system is inevitable, but also why new systems-based ideas, values and technologies have the potential to create a sustainable civilization. Rapid transformation into a sustainable conserver society is possible by making a paradigm shift in the way we relate to nature and each other. The challenge is to quickly transform our current society by using systems thinking. Evolution's Edge is a practical guide full of constructive ideas and tools to help us do just that.

Author Graeme Taylor has been on a world tour furthering the work of his society, Best Futures. The goal of Best Futures is to support the emergence of a sustainable global system through providing people and communities with new tools, perspectives, and knowledge.

Beautifully lucid... If our children and grandchildren are to have a future worth living, we're probably going to get there along the path this book describes. Written with charm and style and rich with insight, this book is highly recommended for anyone looking for reasons for hope. Thomas Homer-Dixon, award-winning author and Chair of Global Systems Studies at the Balsillie School of International Affairs
