“Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business”

When you think about the word “conscious,” what words come to mind? Aware? Mindful? Awake? What about “capitalism?” Selfish? Greedy? Unethical? Unfortunately there are plenty of people out there who don’t have a very positive perception of business in general. But what happens when you combine the concept of consciousness with capitalism? John Mackey, Whole Foods Market’s co-founder and co-CEO, along with Raj Sisodia, a business professor and co-founder of the Conscious Capitalism Institute, address that concept in their new book.

BOOK REVIEWS:

Conscious Capitalism is a wonderful book, full of fiery passion and incisive insights. So buy it. Read it. Implement it. It’s a true guide to future.” -- Forbes.com

“Mackey and Sisodia make a valiant effort to redeem a practice often tainted by greed and corruption and show that if the individuals managing the system commit to conscious capitalism, everyone benefits.” -- Publishers Weekly

“A timely explanation of what is wrong with capitalism and how it can be made right. Recommended for business owners, employees, customers, and investors.”-- Library Journal

“…at a time when the public reputation of big business has hit a dangerous low, surely the efforts of Messrs. Gates, Porter and Mackey—and even Ms. Nooyi—to make capitalism better can't be all bad. As the authors put it: "Free market capitalism is one of the most powerful ideas we humans have ever had. But we can aspire to even more. Let's not be afraid to climb higher."-- The Wall Street Journal

Conscious Capitalism is a book you will want to share with every business owner, manager, and worker you know.”-- Liberty.com

"Whole Foods co-founder Mackey, writing with economist Sisodia, offers a persuasive paean to free enterprise...Light on ideology and long on thoughtful analysis—a good book to hand to the budding entrepreneur in the family."-- Kirkus Reviews
