The Sustainable Network (US $29.99) issues a call to action—a challenge to governments, markets, organizations, groups, and individuals to put the power of this growing network to work. This vast global network is the one thing with the power to unite us all, but the role it might play is still a mystery to most people.
Sorenson says, "The network is everywhere, changing everything. Yet, in spite of its pervasiveness very few people really know what the network is. The fear is that without an understanding of the network, we will not be able to use it to its full advantage. So, I wrote this book to help create awareness of the role the network plays in our lives, businesses and governments in hopes that with this understanding we can collectively innovate and better leverage this amazing connective tool to really affect change."
With this book, Sorensen:
"If you've ever wondered how the network delivers everything you ask of it, start reading this book. And if that makes you say, 'Wow! What else can it do?', then keep reading!"
--Scott Kriens, Chairman of the Board, Juniper Networks, Inc.
"The threats to both the communication network and the climate are real, but Sarah Sorensen shows how investing in the first might just help us save the second."
--Ed Krol, author of The Whole Internet
"This book is timely to the issues of how we sustain our world with technology. A must read!"
--Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo
