Bill Lucas, a leading international expert on life-long learning, shows that while we have learned more about how the brain works in the last decade than we have ever known, only a fraction of this is grasped and applied by most people.

rEvolution

We have reached a turning point in our development as a species. In the coming decades we face significant global challenges in terms of climate change, biodiversity, food and water resources and violent extremism. At the local level, these seem like crazy times, with the speed of change accelerating faster than ever. In rEvolution, best-selling author Bill Lucas suggests some of the ways we can all succeed in today's complex world. 150 years after Charles Darwin invented the concept of natural selection, Bill argues that the rules of evolution are changing. To thrive in our current crazy world we need a new kind of "mind-ware".Specifically we need to develop our adaptive intelligence. Drawing on new and emerging sciences and using approaches previously applied in other domains, this book describes some of the practical steps you can take at home, at school, in the workplace and in the wider community to ensure that you can constantly adapt to new circumstances. Bill's analysis, optimism and suggestions for practical learning make this an essential addition to the book shelf of all thoughtful questioning members of the species!
