9781582702063: Most Good, Least Harm: A Simple Principle for a Better World and Meaningful Life

With a world steeped in materialism, environmental destruction, and injustice, what can one individual possibly do to change it? While the present obstacles we face may seem overwhelming, author and humane educator Zoe Weil shows us that change doesn't have to start with an army. It starts with you. Through her straightforward approaches to living a MOGO, or "most good," life, she reveals that the true path to inner peace doesn't require a retreat from the world. Rather, she gives the reader powerful and practicable tools to face these global issues, and improve both our planet and our personal lives.

Weil explores direct ways to become involved with the community, make better choices as consumers, and develop positive messages to live by, showing readers that their simple decisions really can change the world. Inspiring and remarkably inclusive of the interconnected challenges we face today, Most Good, Least Harm is the next step beyond "green" -- a radical new way to empower the individual and motivate positive change.

About the Author:

Zoe Weil is the co-founder and president of the Institute for Humane Education (IHE). A humane educator since 1985, Zoe has been giving people the tools to make humane and sustainable choices and solve entrenched challenges through her classes, workshops, and training programs. She created the first humane education certificate program and Master of Education in Humane Education in the United States. These distance-learning programs attract students from around the world. The IHE M.Ed. program is offered through an affiliation with Cambridge College where Zoe serves on the faculty.

Zoe is the author of Above All, Be Kind: Raising a Humane Child in Challenging Times for parents, The Power and Promise of Humane Education for teachers, and Claude and Medea: The Hellburn Dogs, a children’s adventure book about 12-year-old activists.

Zoe received master’s degrees from Harvard Divinity School and the University of Pennsylvania and is certified in Psychosynthesis, a form of counseling that relies on individuals’ innate wisdom to promote health and well being.

Zoe lives with her husband, son, and rescued dogs and cat in coastal Maine.

Review:

"There is deep and useful wisdom in this book. It is clean, courageous, and generous." -- John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America, The Food Revolution, and Healthy at 100

"Most Good, Least Harm is a brave, honest, important book. Zoe Weil not only teaches us how to think more comprehensively about today's critical political, environmental, and energy issues but, more important, how to act more effectively." -- Robert Shetterly, artist and author of Americans Who Tell the Truth

"Zoe Weil is a true educator with a fund of inspiring examples, a sound moral principle, and abundant common sense. Reading Most Good, Least Harm -- and passing it on to others -- will do lots of good and no harm." -- Peter Singer, author of Animal Liberation and professor of bioethics, Princeton University

"Most Good, Least Harm is a must read for everyone who wants to do something to make our country and the world a better place for the next generation. It is a recipe for creating a nation of responsive social heroes, who collectively can achieve the positive changes we all desire." -- Philip Zimbardo, PhD, professor emeritus, Stanford University
