Random House NZ, paperback $40.

In this book Steven Carden doesn’t outline what New Zealand should do, rather he argues how New Zealand should be ; how we, as a country and culture, can thrive on the uncertainty of the future, rather than fear and resist it. To accomplish that, he examines aspects of biology, physics, psychology, New Zealand’s history, business and education. Divided into four parts- the End of Certainty, How to Build a Successful Society, New Zealand’s DNA, and A Few Ideas for a More Adaptive New Zealand, Carden describes how we can nurture these key traits to help build a stronger, more adaptive and sustainable country in the future.
