The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times by Jane Goodall

Posted by joko @joko, Dec 15, 2021

Jane Goodall, the naturalist famous for her work with chimpanzees in Africa, has written a new book: "The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times." She was interviewed on NPR yesterday. Her thoughts are profound and give perspective to current sturm and drang. Transplant patients and families need a great deal of hope each and every day. I ordered a copy from the library to read. I hope you find it useful in this endless season of dreary and tragic news.

Thank you @joko for posting this. I agree that Ms. Goodall has an amazing spirit. Her new book is on my reading list. I don’t know if you heard this interview, it was very inspiring – https://www.npr.org/2021/12/14/1064057556/jane-goodall-wants-you-to-remain-hopeful

I'm about halfway through the book. It's an easy, provocative interview format by Doug Abrams. He used this format for the first book in the series, "The Book of Joy" with the Dhali Llama and Bishop Desmond Tutu. Recommend both.

Goodall says she has hope in the future for four reasons: Amazing human intellect. Resilience of Nature. Power of Young People and Indomitable Human Spirit.

Hey. We organ tranplantees and transplanters know something about the "indomitable human spirit."

Yes, I’d have to agree that we certainly can relate to the “indomitable human spirit.” I can use a boost of positivity that Jane Goodall brings and hopeful that the world will embrace it as well.
