9780753556788: More Human: Designing a World Where People Come First

Government, business, the lives we lead, the food we eat, the way our children are brought up, the way we relate to the natural world around us – it's all become too big and distant and industrialised. Inhuman. It's time to do something about it. It's time to put people first. It's time to make the world more human.

Steve Hilton, visiting professor at Stanford University and former senior adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron, believes that the frustrations people have with government, politics, their economic circumstances and their daily lives are caused by deep structural problems in the systems that dominate our modern world – systems that are broken because they've grown too far from the human scale. He shows us how change is possible, offering the latest research, compelling stories and case studies from all over the world across industry, politics, education, design and social action to show us what can happen when we make our world more human. This book is a manifesto and call to action for a more local, more accountable and more human way of living that will make us more productive, more fulfilled and ultimately happier.

Recensione:

" More Human by Steve Hilton is a very timely book and a powerful call for change in how we measure success and how we value what is most important in our lives. We need a more human way of living and, in this compelling book, Steve Hilton shows us how we can achieve it." ( Arianna Huffington)

"‘Hilton is the leading modern day exponent of a humanist tradition dating back 2,500 years. His book is a powerful manifesto of sanity in a world in which the human dimension is under ever greater attack from forces that appear to swamp it’." ( Anthony Seldon)

"Hilton convinces us that to solve problems we need to work bottom up from the human scale, rather than top down from abstract ideas. One of the most important things people are looking for in their lives is kindness, something that is simply not captured by any of the systems governments use today. He urges us to fight the commodification of policy-making and make things work on a specific, human level." ( Nassim Nicholas Taleb)

"The greatest asset that any organisation has – whether in government, business or philanthropy – is people. Yet too often, decision makers treat people more as an abstraction than an asset, leaving those they serve and employ feeling disconnected and disillusioned, and leaving major social and economic problems to fester. More Human picks apart this problem and challenges leaders in every field to look for innovative new solutions by looking people in the eye. You don’t have to agree with every prescription Hilton offers to recognise the value of his approach." ( Michael Bloomberg)

Descrizione del libro:

Hilton believes that change is possible and necessary: that we can create a more local, more accountable, more human way of living that will make us more productive, more fulfilled and ultimately happier.

Descrizione libro Ebury Press. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, More Human, Steve Hilton, Humans don't always behave as you expect them to, sometimes their responses and actions are completely irrational - we don't always make perfect decisions - but that's the model we base everything on. But why? If we design our systems, our government, all the products and services we use for perfect, rational people, is it any wonder why they aren't working? With ever increasing globalisation and technological innovation, we've lost our sense of purpose, of community, of perspective. Government, business, healthcare, our jobs, the food we eat, the way we raise and educate our children, the way we relate to the natural world around us, it's all become too big, too industrialised and impersonal. Inhuman. Steve Hilton, visiting scholar and lecturer at Stanford University and former senior adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron, shows us that it doesn't have to be this way, that we have a choice, and we can choose differently. He offers the latest research and compelling stories and case studies from all over the world, across industry, politics, education, design and philanthropy, to show us what can happen when we make our world more human. Hilton believes that change is possible and necessary: that we can create a more local, more accountable, more human way of living that will make us more productive, more fulfilled and ultimately happier.
