About the book:

When Margaret J. Wheatley's Leadership and the New Science was initially published in 1992, it outlined an unquestionably unique but extremely challenging view of change, leadership and the structure of groups. Many readers immediately embraced its cutting- edge perspective, but others just could not understand how the complicated scientific tenets it described could be used to reshape institutions.

Now Wheatley, an organisational specialist who has since co-authored A Simpler Way, updates the original by including additional material (such as an epilogue addressing her personal experiences during the past decade) and reconstructing some of her more challenging concepts. The result is a much clearer work that first explores the implications of quantum physics on organisational practice, then investigates ways that biology and chemistry affect living systems and finally focuses on chaos theory, the creation of a new order and the manner that scientific principles affect leadership. "Our old ways of relating to each other don't support us any longer", she writes. "It is up to us to journey forth in search of new practices and new ideas that will enable us to create lives and organisations worthy of human habitation." - -Howard Rothman,
