Praise For Thriving Beyond Sustainability

An inventory of grounded hope, practical inspiration, and achievable visions; exactly the kind of thinking, work, and doing that will bring civilization to safe harbor. - David W. Orr, author of Down to the Wire

Andres Edwards is a walking database of information on efforts to create sustainable societies, and his enthusiasm for the promise of sustainability is infectious. - Gary Gardner, Senior Researcher, Worldwatch Institute

Thoroughly researched, deeply contemplated, and yet eminently practical. I warmly recommend it to anyone concerned about the future of human civilization. - Fritjof Capra, author of The Web of Life and The Hidden Connections

This is a beautifully written and eloquent plea for us to wake up to our potential and begin to exercise our natural talent for survival. An extensive resource list at the end provides a wealth of references for further research. This volume is written in a spirit of hope and promise that, if we are willing to follow a fairly simple and direct path, we indeed have hope for a viable future. - Journal of Sustainability Education
