A blueprint for the future
Rather than another analysis of our global plight, How Soon Is Now? offers a strategic action plan for bringing about a systemic transformation in every area. The book explores how each of us, individually, can contribute to this change.
According to Ervin Laszlo, systems thinker and founder of the Club of Budapest, How Soon Is Now? “provides deep insight into the essential issues of our time... could spark the revolution of consciousness that is the revolution not just of thinking, but of acting."

Daniel Pinchbeck’s life is the hero’s journey. Like Homer’s Odyssey, How Soon Is Now is a song of redemption for a world torn apart by the monsters of our own creation. We’ve dreamed a world that is consuming itself into extinction. Pinchbeck offers us a new dream and in doing so takes us on a powerful, magical voyage into balance and sanity.
This provocative and honest book pushes the climate change conversation well beyond its usual edges. it conveys the enormity of the changes before us, in politics, economy, and technology of course, but also in our psychology and even our metaphysics. I recommend it to anyone who is trying to make sense of climate change within a bigger picture that includes the evolution of civilization and consciousness.
Daniel Pinchbeck has emerged as a rational and clear voice of hope for a new post-capitalist future, offering alternatives to hack democracy for a better society. His expert knowledge of shamanism and ancient cultures has given him a quantum perspective from which to approach our contemporary crisis. A powerful voice providing a new narrative for alternative social movements. Pinchbeck is a prophetic change- agent with a serious message of hope.
How Soon Is Now offers a spiritually driven approach to global economic and ecological crisis. This is the process through which humanity can bring itself back from the brink. With dangerous and admirable honesty, Pinchbeck tests his deepest held assumptions and judges his life choices in a crucible of self-doubt. It’s at once an initiation for himself, and an invitation for us to ask these same sorts of questions of ourselves as individuals and a society.
Daniel Pinchbeck's new book is a remarkable synthesis of esoteric vision and hard fact, packaged in a highly readable form accessible to everyone. It is not only accessible to everyone; it should be actively accessed by everyone. Because it not only entertains, excites and fascinates, but provides deep insight into the essential issues of our time. At a crisis point, we need insights such as this book provides. They could spark the revolution of consciousness that is the revolution not just of thinking, but of acting — the revolution that has become the precondition of our collective, and hence also of our individual wellbeing and even survival on this vulnerable and already ravaged but still precious and always beautiful home in the cosmos.
