Having trained in the legal profession, which prizes reason, this book helped me reframe unreason as the agency of change. In fact, being a “disruptive influence” can be a badge of honour to be encouraged in those working to promote social innovation and change.
These books and other literature in the field are great reminders that social change is not only the province of governments, big companies, or ‘other people’. The good news is that anyone can bring new ideas, or adapt existing ones, to address unmet social needs and tackle social problems. And if people tell you that you are being “unreasonable” as you work to grow your social enterprise or make your contribution to combating the world’s pressing social issues, there is every chance that you are on the right track to make your contribution to change for the better.
