about this item

The summation of a life's work, in which Handy considers what the future holds for society.     Britain's leading guru looks to the future.     Charles Handy is one of the giants of contemporary thought. His books on management -- including Understanding Organizations and Gods of Management -- have changed the way we view business. His work on broader issues and trends -- such as Beyond Certainty -- has changed the way we view society.      In The Second Curve, Handy builds on a life's work to glimpse into the future and see what challenges and opportunities lie ahead. He looks at current trends in capitalism and asks whether it is a sustainable system. He explores the dangers of a society built on credit. He challenges the myth that remorseless growth is essential. He even asks whether we should rethink our roles in life -- as students, parents, workers and voters -- and what the aims of an ideal society of the future should be.      Provocative and thoughtful as ever, he sets out the questions we all need to ask ourselves -- and points us in the direction of some of the answers.
