"This is a brilliant book . . . We have to learn to think differently . . . this new way of thinking should begin in schools, colleges, and be taught on popular TV programs. There is still time to save ourselves, if we listen to authors like these."
-- Doris Lessing

New World New Mind should become required reading for all those who want to know where humanity has come from and the changes we now need to make to face our future
-- Dr. Donald C. Johanson, Author of Lucy

"In New World New Mind, Ornstein and Ehrlich brilliantly propose some changes in our modes of thinking that could help us avoid nuclear catastrophe."
-- Senator Alan Cranston (California)

"New World New Mind shows what we have done to not only our surrounding world but to ourselves. It would be a dangerous oversight to miss this book's message."
--Roger Caras, Correspondent, TV Network News, ABC News

"We will never look at our world and ourserlves in the same way again after reading this book. New World New Mind is an astonishing synthesis of biological, social, and historical knowledge, one that points the direction for the future evolution of our society."
-- Terrance Leighton, Professor of Microbiology and Biochemistry, University of California at Berkeley

"New World New Mind has a compelling message of urgent importance. It both diagnoses the psychological causes of the current planetary crisis and points to a way out. If we don't act on this information, our grandchildren may never forgive us."
-- Daniel Goleman, Author, Vital Lies and The Meditative Mind
