Wow! Access to our deepest capacity to sense and shape the future. Right up my alley. By inspiring authors, too.

Presence: Human Purpose and the Field of the Future by Peter Senge, C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, and Betty Sue Flowers

    How would the world change if we learned to access, individually and collectively, our deepest capacity to sense and shape the future? This is just one of the questions posed by the authors of a book that combines unusual personal honesty with rigorous critical thinking.
Unfortunately, I'll probably never find out how Peter and Joe predict the world may change, for they are asking $40 for the book, and that's outside my price range for unknowns. I may still be smarting from giving up trying to get through The Fifth Discipline despite several attempts. Guess I'll have to wait for the Presence Fieldbook.

I agree - The 5th Discipline just gathers dust on my shelf.

Fascinating that these people who supposedly see into our wired, connected future have not grasped the idea of putting their content onto the web. Demonstrating that you seriously do not get it is a strong disincentive for belief. IMHO, the only people worth reading, at least in our field, are people who publish online.
