Conspiracy of Dreamers: Capitalism at the Service of Humanity is about how the power of the free market – aided by technology and guided by the good intentions of millions – can put capitalism to the task of solving some of humanity’s most stubborn challenges. No new regulations, laws or taxes are required. Conspiracy of Dreamers explores exciting possibilities for reconfiguring capitalism so it enables us to shape the world in line with our highest ideals – truth, love, beauty, and justice. It weaves these possibilities for social and economic transformation into the unfolding history of humanity. Improvements in humanity’s ability to store, communicate and manipulate information have spurred advances in social organization throughout time. Speech, written language, money, Arabic numerals, and the printing press enabled more complex, expansive and lasting forms of coordination. Computers, the Internet, and smart phones hold a similar – if not more revolutionary – potential to bring about lasting positive change. Conspiracy of Dreamers lays a foundation for understanding this potential, and offers specific ideas for how to convert this potential into reality.

In the West, we have everything we could possibly need or want—except for peace of mind. So writes Linda Leaming, a harried American who traveled from Nashville, Tennessee, to the rugged Himalayan nation of Bhutan—sometimes called the happiest place on Earth—to teach English and unlearn her politicized and polarized, energetic and impatient way of life. In Bhutan, if I have three things to do in a week, it’s considered busy. In the U.S., I have at least three things to do between breakfast and lunch. After losing her luggage immediately upon arrival, Leaming realized that she also had emotional baggage—a tendency toward inaction, a touch of self-absorption, and a hundred other trite, stupid, embarrassing, and inconsequential things—that needed to get lost as well. Pack up ideas and feelings that tie you down and send you lead-footed down the wrong path. Put them in a metaphorical suitcase and sling it over a metaphorical bridge in your mind. Let the river take them away. Forced by circumstance and her rustic surroundings to embrace a simplified life, Leaming made room for more useful beliefs. The thin air and hard climbs of her mountainous commute put her deeply in touch with her breath, helping her find focus and appreciation. The archaic, glacially paced bureaucracy of a Bhutanese bank taught her to go with the flow—and take up knitting. The ancient ritual of drinking tea brought tranquility, friendship, and, eventually, a husband. Each day, and each adventure, in her adopted home brought new insights and understandings to take back to frantic America, where she now practices the art of “simulating Bhutan.” This collection of stories, impressions, and suggestions is a little nudge, a push, a leg up into the rarefied air of paradise—of bright sunlight and beautiful views.

The "conspiracy of kindess" operates on a simple premise: Loving deeds done by unassuming Christians convince more people of the love of God than all the words in the world. If evangelism doesn't seem to be your gift or you're burned out on trying to share the gospel, try Servant Evangelism. It works! Book jacket.

Blood of the Tiger takes readers on a wild ride to save one of the world’s rarest animals from a band of Chinese billionaires. Many people think wild tigers are on the road to recovery, but they are in greater danger than ever—from a menace few experts saw coming. There may be only three thousand wild tigers left in the entire world. More shocking is the fact that twice that many—some six thousand—have been bred on farms, not for traditional medicine but to supply a luxury-goods industry that secretly sells tiger-bone wine, tiger-skin décor, and exotic cuisine enjoyed by China’s elite. Two decades ago, international wildlife investigator J. A. Mills went undercover to expose bear farming in China and discovered the plot to turn tigers into nothing more than livestock. Thus begins the story of a personal crusade in which Mills mobilizes international forces to awaken the world to a conspiracy so pervasive that it threatens every last tiger in the wild. In this memoir of triumph, heartbreak, and geopolitical intrigue, Mills and a host of heroic comrades try to thwart a Chinese cadre’s plan to launch billion-dollar industries banking on the extinction of not just wild tigers but also elephants and rhinos. Her journey takes her across Asia, into the jungles of India and Nepal, to Russia and Africa, traveling by means from elephant back to presidential motorcade, in the company of man-eaters, movie stars, and world leaders. She finds reason for hope in the increasing number of Chinese who do not want the blood of the last wild tigers to stain their beloved culture and motherland. Set against the backdrop of China’s ascendance to world dominance, Blood of the Tiger tells of a global fight to rein in the forces of greed on behalf of one of the world’s most treasured and endangered animals.

Make Conflict Your Partner for Positive Change! Clinical psychologist and transformative communication expert Dr. Nate Regier believes that the biggest energy crisis facing our world is the misuse of conflict. Most organizations are terrified of conflict, seeing it as a sign of trouble. But conflict isn't the problem, says Regier. It's all about how we use the energy. When people misuse conflict energy, it becomes drama: they struggle against themselves or each other to feel justified about their negative behavior. The cost to companies, teams, and relationships is staggering. The alternative, says Regier, is compassionate accountability: struggling with others through conflict. Discover the Compassion Cycle, an elegant model for balancing empathy, care, and transparency with boundaries, goals, and standards. Provocative, illuminating, and highly practical, this book helps us avoid the casualties of conflict through openness, resourcefulness, and persistence.

In his 2016 ground-breaking leadership book, The Compassionate Conspiracy, Dr. Phil Johnson redefined "conspirators" as "radical global servant-leaders" who work together to tackle the biggest problems we face today. Now, in Lead Like a Heretic, he revolutionises the meaning of "heretic" and confronts today's global leadership crisis: the failure of leaders at all levels to engage, energise, and empower their followers. This book explores the heretical process of daring leadership and change, providing famous examples from business, government, education, sports, professional associations, and non-profit organisations.
