A New Way to Wealth
The Power of Doing More With Less
by Bruce Piasecki View author's profile page

Overview


"An impassioned and engaging call to make life and work more sustainable." —Kirkus Reviews

"A NEW WAY TO WEALTH is a master work on work in a world of change. Piasecki does it again." —Chris Coulter, CEO, Globescan

"Inspired by the way Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen & Ben Franklin lived their creative lives, A NEW WAY TO WEALTH is the catalyst needed for a conversation to discover your own solutions." —Bobby Carlton, Director of Immersive Learning, Ready Learner One

"Piasecki has created a new metric in these pages, the concept of competitive frugality, explained in practical detail in one coherent swoop." —Richard Ellis, Vice President, Corporate Social responsibility, Walgreens Boots Alliance

"Piascki provides a message for our carbon- and capital-constrained world. Clever and informed, his nineteenth book delivers an urgent, articulate call for a future that is at once frugal and fulfilling, and, most importantly, sustainable." —Paul Grondahl, Director of the NYS Writers Institute at the University at Albany, and author of several books

"In a world increasingly constrained by planetary boundaries and the impacts of climate and social change, this book is both intelligent and fun. It brings together the full extent of Bruce's personal experience and journey—along with the unique individuals with whom he has worked over decades—to offer wonderful insights on what it takes to transform to a purposeful, sustainable, and winning experience." —Dr. Dominic Emery, Chief of Staff, bp

"A NEW WAY TO WEALTH calls us away from the mindless dribble of competition for merely personal gain, to commit to business and personal practices that sustain and bring wealth to the common good as well. A book to buy, read, remember, and cherish." —L. Rostaing (Ross) Tharaud, Attorney

"Bruce Piasecki's newest book colorfully describes the secret to organizational success in the age of climate change—competitive frugality! Not mere belt-tightening, but the joyful pursuit of innovations that efficiently build social capital. Piasecki is a man of insight and heart; we would do well to follow his lead." —William Throop, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy and Environmental Studies, Green Mountain College

"Bruce Piasecki's latest book reminds us of the importance of the traditional principles of personal integrity, frugality, and a genuine concern for others. For anyone who seeks to lead today, understanding these principles and learning how to apply them effectively are essential, and Piasecki's latest book will help you do that." —Ken Strassner, Yale Attorney
