"Daniel Quinn's masterpiece Ishmael brings a new level of awareness
of the present plight of the human condition. It is especially important
to get this book into the hands of students and leaders in business,
health care, and the public sector--that is to say, all of us who have a
stake in the future. The clarity of thought presented in Ishmael can
literally help students orient their lives. We at MIT are presently using
the book in many of our programs on visionary leadership and
organizational learning."
Peter M. Senge, Director, Organizational Learning Center,
Massachusetts Institute of technology, Author of THE FIFTH DISCIPLINE

The book that has the whole world thinking . . . and rethinking.
