This book is in very good condition - it is a paperback with a card dust jacket. The dust jacket has a line of light damage (see image), and the spine is faded, but both dust jacket and cover are clean, intact, and without foxing. Internally, the pages have aged very slightly, but are bright, clean, and include diagrams and verse.
"Stafford Beer is undoubtedly among the world's most provocative, creative, and profound thinkers on the subject of management, and he records his thinking with a flair that is unmatched. His writing is as much art as it is science. He is the most viable system I know." - Dr Russell L Ackoff, The Institute for Interactive Management, Pennsylvania. USA. This is a highly original book both in content and format. It presents thirteen arguments for change. These are linked by a personal commentary, and by a deeper, metalinguistic, commentary. Platform for Change is completely self-contained, does not deal at all with the nature of viable systems, but is directed towards the hope that our planet may yet remain viable--and the human race survive.
