From the thought leader that changed the way we think about business with his 1990 bestseller The Fifth Discipline, comes a collection of strategies that companies and individuals can utilize to tackle important environmental problems worldwide. The Necessary Revolution: How Individuals and Organizations Are Working Together to Create a Sustainable World debuted in early June after a much anticipated wait, published by Doubleday Business and written by Peter Senge — the man who was named by the Journal of Business Strategy “as one of the 24 people who had the greatest influence on business strategy over the last 100 years.”

Ever since our editorial staff read about the coming of Senge’s latest book in Doubleday’s catalog, we worked closely with their subsidiary rights team to secure the summary rights to a book that we felt would rock the business world.  Apparently we weren’t the only ones that thought this way.

Reviewers on Amazon.com—your peers—gave the book gave the book four out of five stars, claiming that the book “hits the nail on the head” and is “a compass and a roadmap for progress.” I couldn’t have said it better. Even more interesting is the interview that Jessie Scanlon of BusinessWeek conducted with the management guru; an excerpt of the interview can be found online here

And if you haven’t picked up a copy of the book yet, you’ll be happy to know that it’ll be available in our September package; so read up on some of the reviews, check out the BW interview, and start thinking about some changes your company can make to become more sustainable.
