Getting to Maybe: how the world is changed.
Vintage. 2007

Many of us have a deep desire to make the world a better place, but often our good intentions are undermined by the fear that we are so insignificant nothing we can do will actually make a difference. By studying real-life examples, Getting To Maybe harvests the experiences of a wide range of people and organizations to lay out a brand new way of thinking about making change in communities, in business and in the world. Westley, Zimmerman and Patton illustrate that great social change is not just the province of heroes, but well within reach of everyone.
