A very informative and necessary book for those that want a better future for all.

Shanon Avery, President & CEO, Toronto Foundation, Amazon Reviewer

Having the opportunity to read an early version, I found myself wondering just how many re-writes Henry and Jeremy had to do before publishing. As movements like #metoo and the Florida gun crisis unfolded - the relevance of their topic has been reinforced over and over in the last few months.

This book is chock-full of dynamic case studies, and could not come at better time for this disrupted world. As a leader in the not-for-profit sector, I value this as a manual for navigating the baton pass of power from the few to the many; may we all learn something of the good that can come, and avoid more of the bad. Thank you Henry and Jeremy for sharing your wisdom with the world. An important read.

Bigelow, Amazon Reviewer

An essential playbook. If you were wowed by Obama’s win and dismayed by Trump’s, cheered on the #MeToo movement and lamented the rise of ISIS, this book will connect the dots. New Power will help you discern the forces at play and show you how to put them to work on the path to reaching your goals. Highly recommended.

Sandrine Seavey, Amazon Reviewer

This one's a page-turner – books that try to explain broader dynamics like this one often get stuck in abstractions, but the authors' case studies are fascinating and really bring the concept to life. Extremely useful framework to help explain how we've gotten here. Highly recommend!

Lee-Sean, Amazon Reviewer

Do you want to understand how networks are changing business, culture, and politics? Do you want to unleash the power of crowd leadership? Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms connect the dots on how our hyper-connectedness is changing business, politics, and the world in general.

The authors provide penetrating analysis of why old power models and actors need to give way and evolve, and how they can do so and the book is full of interesting and compelling examples and stories that illustrate the opportunities as well as the challenges.
