Visionaries and idealists are often dismissed as being, well, mad--stark-raving loonies. POSITIVELY M.A.D. turns such labels around--telling the stories of people who courageously pursued "crazy" ideas that challenged conventional thinking, re-imagined the way things could and should work, and, ultimately, made a difference. This compelling and moving guide to personal empowerment offers stories, advice, examples, and ideas that can be immediately applied in your own life.

Told by more than 50 of Berrett-Koehler Publishers' bestselling authors--renowned business, community, and thought leaders--these stories show how people around the world are creating positive change in their communities, despite the challenges of our times.
