That's the wonderful thing about man; he never gets so discouraged or disgusted that he gives up doing it all over again, because he knows very well it is important and worth the doing.

Ray Bradbury (1920–2012)

Help the Change You Want to See in the World

We’ve put together an amazing and vitally important book in a scarcely known language: Hungarian. Help us translate the book so we could make it accessible for you and the rest of the world!

What is the book about? In short: the present, past and future of civilization! It’s about the tools which allow us to provide for a brighter future and help us build a better world: knowledge, community, work, and joy.

There are no recipes for solving our major issues, yet this volume can still provide us with a source of inspiration and a clearly definable direction for reconsidering our mission here on Earth.

The motto of the volume is best conveyed by a quote from Ray Bradbury: “That's the wonderful thing about man; he never gets so discouraged or disgusted that he gives up doing it all over again, because he knows very well it is important and worth the doing.”

Do you know what makes it worth doing it again and again? And more importantly: do you know HOW it’s worth doing it?

The book has the answers to these questions.
