"Inspired by Octavia Butler's explorations of our human relationship to change, Emergent Strategy is radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help designed to shape the futures we want to live. Change is constant. The world is in a continual state of flux. It is a stream of ever-mutating, emergent patterns. Rather than steel ourselves against such change, this book invites us to feel, map, assess, and learn from the swirling patterns around us in order to better understand and influence them as they happen. This is a resolutely materialist "spirituality" based equally on science and science fiction, a visionary incantation to transform that which ultimately transforms us."--Amazon.com.

An intriguing book full of great ideas. However. While being nonlinear and iterative are core elements of emergent strategy and I can appreciate the importance of this book embodying those principles, Brown takes them to such an extreme that my overwhelming experience of the book was struggling with its disjointed and chaotic nature. I loved the ideas, but not the writing.

The description, for whatever reason, comments on a book by Salvatore, not the book by Brown. (If they FIX this in the future, then please ignore comment.)
