Tao of Holism, The

A Blueprint for 21st Century Living


CATEGORIZED IN

Should we abandon our modern lifestyle? Or should we ignore dire warnings about the environment? How can we live sustainably and comfortably?

The Tao of Holism is a source of factual and statistical data and expert opinion on many topics of widespread concern – health, nutrition, education, economics, religion, breakdown of society, depletion of the environment’s resources and exploitation of third world communities. Howard Jones aims to inform opinion makers, to influence society and governments and to empower people to live within our environmental resources, outlining the steps we must take to live holistically.

Howard Jones, author of The Thoughtful Guide to God, has been a teacher for 40 years, and hopes that we will be saved by becoming aware of the universal spiritual dimension of human existence.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

This book is truly a polymath's work, written for a public that has much information but not necessarily the ability to connect the pieces. Under simple headings such as 'The body' or 'Environment' he collects the most diverse topics and seamlessly relates them in a no-nonsense style of writing. He can range from the abuse of power to C.diff., GDP and the politics in Ladakh and put them together to make it clear that they do relate in the Holism that is the great concern of someone who has seen a vision of a society as perhaps once understood 'naturally' but now needs to realise that the 'global village' is not just a nifty expression, but a reality that we can no longer ignore. Read this book and find yourself constantly saying, 'of course, that makes sense'. ~ Dr Verena Tschudin, Co-author of Seeing the Invisible (Penguin)

What Howard Jones is offering is a total design for living harmoniously with everything and in all ways, the way of harmony with the spirit that dwells in all things, and consequently the way of harmony with all people and all beings - a highly ambitious project after my own heart! Howard Jones brings a lifetime of study and an extraordinary breadth of scholarship to his task. He deals with most of the key issues facing humanity, and erects clear signposts to the holistic way. ~ Dr Malcolm Hollick, Author of The Science of Oneness

The Tao of Holism is synonymous with the title The Path Leading to a Holistic View of the World. This is a book that would give a deep thinker a sound foundation for understanding why our big problems rose to prominence and what we need to do to solve them. It reveals a seemingly endless collection of examples showing how a holistic view is superior to the breakdown view in almost every facet of life. The author reveals an exceptional talent for moving horizontally toward breadth without sacrificing scholarship. Everything he suggests comes from a full career of reading, writing, thinking and dealing with people. The Tao of Holism can serve as a stand-alone manual to prepare a deep thinking person for life in the future. It can serve as a reference book in which it is easy to link needs for information by topic with the 404 references that nourish the book. It can serve as a mother lode of knowledge and insight that connects with peripheral sources that feed it and the practical applications it nurtures. ~ Dr Ben Korgen, Oceanographer rtd, colleague of Sir Alister Hardy F.R.S

The Tao of Holism is valuably, readably encyclopedic. ~ Manohar, De Numine

This is a book of warnings and a chronicle of impending disasters, but has a message of hope overall. It will inspire and inform anyone seeking a holistic lifestyle and has enormous relevance to our current world situation.

This book is about a way of life which appreciates that everything is interconnected, a perspective that would seem to be essential for the future survival of life on this planet. However, it is a concept that eludes us in many areas of life. Howard Jones explores the effects of holistic approaches, and the lack of them, in many subject areas. It is his bringing together into one big picture that makes this such an impressive book. He weaves effortlessly through the complexities, bringing it all together, warning and inspiring in equal measure... ~ Bill Anderton, Pilgrims Mind Body Spirit
