"This book is a must-read for business leaders who are coming to recognize that to continue to thrive, business must join forces with interest groups, communities, and government to address the wicked sustainability challenges of our time. Kahane shows us how.
—Diane Osgood, Vice President, Business for Social Responsibility
"This is a superb book; wise and thoughtful."
—W. Brian Arthur, External Professor, Sana Fe Institute, author of The Nature of Technology
"This book is written with great insight and revealing honesty. Adam is a wonderful storyteller, grounds his thinking in reality, and in this book gives us a path to making a lasting difference in the world."
—Peter Block, author of Stewardship, The Answer to How Is Yes, and Community
“Adam’s Solving Tough Problems helped me understand that all of our pressing problems—be they strategic issues inside a company or societal challenges like conflict, poverty, or climate change—require that those with a stake and the power to act come together in open dialogue to create a joint diagnosis and a deep commitment to moving forward together. In Power and Love, Adam goes further and deeper, into the kind of leadership that it takes to do this.”
—Ravi Venkatesan, Chairman, Microsoft India
“It isn’t either-or; it’s both-and. In this deceptively brief and clearly written book, Adam Kahane takes us through his own learning process to a way of acting in and on the world that is both effective and caring. Intelligent, insightful, satisfying—and inspiring.”
—Mary Catherine Bateson, author of Composing a Life and Willing to Learn
“Kahane is a master practitioner and thinker who knows the highs and lows of solving some of the toughest problems of social discord. Power and Love is both instructive and inspiring.”
—Patrick Dodson, winner of the Sydney Peace Prize and Founding Chairman, Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation
