Summary
Just like The Transition Handbook and The Transition Timeline, this book is essential reading for anyone who wants to make the journey from where we are now to where we need - actually, want - to go next. It perfectly encapsulates the spirit of what is now an extraordinary worldwide movement, showing the change to be something beautiful and inspiring and not the terrible sacrifice that it can often be perceived as by a fundamentally unhappy society that really ought to be ready to sacrifice it's unhappiness. It's realistic, its based on over three years experience meaning its advice is more accurate, meaningful and useful than the excellent handbook, and as always from Rob it's incredibly well-written. In 2008, the best selling The Transition Handbook suggested a model for a community-led response to peak oil and climate change. Since then, the Transition idea has gone viral across the globe, from universities and London neighbourhoods to Italian villages and Brazilian favelas. In contrast to the ever-worsening stream of information about climate change, the economy and resource depletion, Transition focuses on solutions, on community-scale projects and on positive results. The Transition Companion picks up the story today, describing one of the most fascinating experiments now under.
