Description

In this indispensable guide to navigating the twenty-first century, two visionary thinkers reveal the unexpected ways power is changing--and how "new power" is reshaping politics, business, and life.

Why do some leap ahead while others fall behind in our chaotic, connected age? In New Power, Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms confront the biggest stories of our time--the rise of mega-platforms like Facebook and Uber; the out-of-nowhere victories of Obama and Trump; the unexpected emergence of movements like #MeToo--and reveal what's really behind them: the rise of "new power."

For most of human history, the rules of power were clear: power was something to be seized and then jealously guarded. This "old power" was out of reach for the vast majority of people. But our ubiquitous connectivity makes possible a different kind of power. "New power" is made by many. It is open, participatory, and peer-driven. It works like a current, not a currency--and it is most forceful when it surges. The battle between old and new power is determining who governs us, how we work, and even how we think and feel.

New Power shines fresh light on the cultural phenomena of our day, from #BlackLivesMatter to the Ice Bucket Challenge to Airbnb, uncovering the new power forces that made them huge. Drawing on examples from business, activism, and pop culture, as well as the study of organizations like Lego, NASA, Reddit, and TED, Heimans and Timms explain how to build new power and channel it successfully. They also explore the dark side of these forces: the way ISIS has co-opted new power to monstrous ends, and the rise of the alt-right's "intensity machine."

In an era increasingly shaped by new power, this groundbreaking audiobook offers us a new way to understand the world--and our role in it.

Very Disappointing

Overall this book was very disappointing. I expected a lot more valuable insights. While the book did a pretty good job of explaining examples of "new power", it totally failed to live up to its subtitle - "and how to make it work for you". This aspect of the book was very muddled. I'm not exactly sure who is the target audience for this book. If you are looking to harness "new power" to promote a cause, you won't find the answers here. Finally, it was clear that the authors are trying to throw out new terms that they hope will be seized upon and used by others. The book is chock full of new definitional terms. That can get a bit annoying at times. I would not recommend this book.

Not worth the listen

The coddling of the American Mind is the book to read on this topic. It has better examples from a non partisan agenda. I would not waste your time

A great book!

They address on of the biggest problems in business, power across generations. it reminds me of "What got you here will not get you there" as organizations cannot continue to function in the same manner that they have and expect to be relevant or prosper into the future.

Need to read this again

Talks a lot about new power and its interplay with old power. Light on how to apply, though there are clues.

Good to Great Redux. Smart!👍👍

Excellent explanation of a seismic shift from centralized to decentralized power structures. "From AARP to ADD," read this to understand massive change.

Informative but boring

Through the book, I became more aware of the structure of several organizations. I however found it quite boring.

With the categorizations, it may be easier to read the physical book than listen to the audio book which I listen to when walking or driving. I never go to refer to the charts after the fact.

A few tid bits and overall pedantic

Like most of these types of books, this one has a few tidbits of interest, a few new ideas, but in general this was too long to get to the point and too pedantic for my taste.

Great inside into massive collaboration

how to have ideas bigger than yourself and implement them without the massive resources of mega corporations.
