A fun and welcome look into Rob Hopkins personal journey into founding Transition and how such an impactful movement has gradually picked up momentum. Hopkins is an inspiration that as everyday people we can do extraordinary things together if we just start. My only critique of this English edition would be poor proofreading in the translation or copyediting phase, leading to many typos that were at times distracting. But don’t let that stop you from reading it and getting to work!
