Robert Ornstein and Paul Ehrlich
MALOR BOOKS, 2000
There is no longer sufficient time to rely on the normal pace of cultural evolution to deal with today's dilemmas...
Human beings have always been the most adaptable creatures on the planet, and they should be able to chart a new course for themselves. Some of that charting is already being done. The old mind today is being challenged and changed by many scattered efforts. Can we bring these efforts together to produce a large-scale program for a rapid "change-of-mind"? We know what the problem is. The "solution" is not simple—to generate the social and political will to move a program of conscious evolution to the top of the human agenda.

"It's a rare book that changes people's lives, rarer still a book that changes the world. In New World New Mind, Robert Ornstein and Paul Ehrlich not only have the audacity to attempt both things, but they offer just enough visionary thinking and nuts and bolts research to carry it off." —San Francisco Chronicle
"If we don't act on this information, our grandchildren may never forgive us." —Dan Goleman, New York Times
