From New York Times bestselling author and speaker Roy H. Williams and business guru Michael R. Drew comes a revolutionary book outlining the surprising societal phenomenon that unlocks the secrets to success in the worlds of business, politics, advertising, entertainment, and more.
Politics, manners, humor, sexuality, wealth, even our definitions of success are periodically renegotiated based on the new values society chooses to use as a lens to judge what is acceptable.
Are these new values randomly chosen or is there a pattern? Pendulum chronicles the stuttering history of western society; that endless back-and-forth swing between one excess and another, always reminded of what we left behind.
There is a pattern and it is forty years: 2003 was a fulcrum year, as was 1963, its opposite.
Pendulum explains where we have been as a society, how we got here, and where we are headed. If you would benefit from a peek into the future, you would do well to listen to this book.
