The Book of Hope by Jane Goodall, and Douglas Abrams

A Survival Guide for Trying times.

 

In a world that seems so troubled, how do we hold on to hope?

 

Looking at the headlines-the worsening climate crisis, a global pandemic, loss of biodiversity, political upheaval-it can be hard to feel optimistic. And yet hope has never been more desperately needed.

 

In this urgent book, Jane Goodall, the worlds most famous living naturalist, and Douglas Abrams, the internationally bestselling co-author of The Book of Joy, explore through intimate and thought-provoking dialogue one of the most sought after and least understood elements of human nature: hope. In The Book of Hope, Jane focuses on her Four Reasons for Hope: The Amazing Human Intellect, The Resilience of Nature, The Power of Young People, and The Indomitable Human Spirit.

 

Drawing on decades of work that has helped expand our understanding of what it means to be human and what we all need to do to help build a better world, The Book of Hope touches on vital questions, including: How do we stay hopeful when everything seems hopeless? How do we cultivate hope in our children? What is the relationship between hope and action? Filled with moving and inspirational stories and photographs from Janes remarkable career, The Book of Hope is a deeply personal conversation with one of the most beloved figures in the world today.

 

While discussing the experiences that shaped her discoveries and beliefs, Jane tells the story of how she became a messenger of hope, from living through World War II to her years in Gombe to realizing she had to leave the forest to travel the world in her role as an advocate for environmental justice. And for the first time, she shares her profound revelations about her next, and perhaps final, adventure.

 

The second book in the Global Icons Series-which launched with the instant classic The Book of Joy with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu- The Book of Hope is a rare and intimate look not only at the nature of hope but also into the heart and mind of a woman who revolutionized how we view the world around us and has spent a lifetime fighting for our future.

 

There is still hope, and this book will help guide us to it.
