Frances Moore Lappe - Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity and Courage in a World Gone Mad
October 30, 2007
Hosted by Dr. Pat Baccili
Author of sixteen books, including three-million-copy bestseller Diet for a Small Planet, Frances Moore Lappe distills her world-spanning experience and wisdom in a conversational yet hard-hitting style. Getting a Grip is a rare “aha” book that flouts conventional right-versus-left divisions and affirms readers’ basic sanity - their intuition that it is possible to stop grasping at straws and to grasp instead the real roots of today’s crises, from hunger and poverty to climate change and terrorism. Getting a Grip leaves readers feeling liberated and courageous. Because we are creatures of the mind, says Frances, it is the power of “frame” - our core assumptions about how the world works - that determines outcomes. She pinpoints the dominant, failing frame now driving our planet toward disaster. Then, with fresh insights, startling facts, and stirring vignettes of ordinary people pursuing creative solutions, Lappe uncovers a new, empowering frame emerging worldwide.
