Those who have power want to be told they have it and how to keep it. Those that don’t have power want someone to envy. As a result, the audience for books on power is seemingly endless.
So I was initially cautious about another one released this week – but New Power by Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms turns out to be a nifty guide to the 21st century that is genuinely new. Instead of one more catchy way of describing how the world works, they have written a manifesto for organising that world with more humanity and purpose.
Ultimately you’ll either hate it or wish you had written it, depending on whether you believe in old or new power.
