A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The world's most intractable problems solved: ambitious lessons in leadersh ip and hope from free-thinkers and innovators who have tackled our biggest challenges From immigration reform to energy resources, from political paralysis to in equality and extremism, we are beset by a raft of huge and seemingly insurm ountable issues. The daily newspapers, the rolling 24-hour television news, portray a world in terminal decline. What goes under-reported are the success stories. Here, taking ten of the m ost knotty issues we face today, Jonathan Tepperman examines unsung individ uals' bold and innovative attempts against all odds and expectations to sol ve some of the important problems governments have struggled with for decad es. Each chapter tells the story of one government that's found a way to av oid the snares that entangle most of the others. The solutions described in the book aren't speculative: they've all already been tried, and they work . Controversial, provocative but always stimulating, Tepperman here offers a powerful, data-driven case for optimism. Written with flair and an infectious exuberance, The Fix is a book to restore hope to the pessimistic, and offer both practical advice and inspiration in a time of relentless bad news.
