Wicked & Wise is the compelling launch title in a ground breaking new series exploring hotly debated issues facing the planet and its people, and offering unique ways to tackle seemingly intractable social and cultural challenges.

Co-authored by leadership and change expert Alan Watkins and renowned social thinker Ken Wilber, Wicked & Wise looks at the most pressing issues affecting the world today. From the clash of religions and cultures, to the growing dependence upon technology, the book sets the scene for debating key challenges facing current and future generations. Many issues, whether social, cultural, political or business-lead, seem completely resistant to change. However the authors suggest that many ‘wicked’ problems can be philosophically and practically challenge through the application of a ‘wise’ Integral Coherence model, providing a platform to engage with issues in a highly developed, enlightened and selfless way.

Wicked & Wise provides the basis of a more comprehensive solution to any problem, from the simplest to the most complex, and will prove an essential inspiration for anyone who wants to tackle life in a more positive, proactive and empathetic way.

Alan Watkins is recognized as an international expert on leadership and human performance.

Ken Wilber is widely regarded as one of the most important philosophers in the world today.
