520    In the years following her role as the lead author of the 
       international best seller, Limits to Growth - the first 
       book to show the consequences of unchecked growth on a 
       finite planet - Donella Meadows remained a pioneer of 
       environmental and social analysis until her untimely death
       in 2001.  Thinking in Systems is a concise and crucial 
       book offering insight for problem-solving on scales 
       ranging from the personal to the global. Edited by the 
       Sustainability Institute's Diana Wright, this essential 
       primer brings systems thinking out of the realm of 
       computers and equations and into the tangible world, 
       showing listeners how to develop the systems-thinking 
       skills that thought leaders across the globe consider 
       critical for 21st-century life.  Some of the biggest 
       problems facing the world - war, hunger, poverty, and 
       environmental degradation - are essentially system 
       failures. They cannot be solved by fixing one piece in 
       isolation from the others, because even seemingly minor 
       details have enormous power to undermine the best efforts 
       of too-narrow thinking.  While listeners will learn the 
       conceptual tools and methods of systems thinking, the 
       heart of the book is grander than methodology. Donella 
       Meadows was known as much for nurturing positive outcomes 
       as she was for delving into the science behind global 
       dilemmas. She reminds listeners to pay attention to what 
       is important, not just what is quantifiable, to stay 
       humble, and to stay a learner.  In a world growing ever 
       more complicated, crowded, and interdependent, Thinking in
       Systems helps listeners avoid confusion and helplessness, 
       the first step toward finding proactive and effective
