New Power: How Power Works In Our Hyperconnected World – and How To Make It Work For You by Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms

New Power (2018) maps out the changing power dynamics of the twenty-first century. Digital technology and ubiquitous connectivity have exploded, altering the very nature of power itself – how it functions, how it’s won and how it’s held. Heimans and Timms explain who’s using this to their advantage, who isn’t and what these new forms of power mean for you.

  • Anyone interested in society’s changing power relations
  • People who wish to understand the power of digital crowds
  • Leaders and entrepreneurs looking to start a movement

Jeremy Heimans is an Australian entrepreneur, political activist and CEO of Purpose, a company that builds and supports movements for various businesses, organizations and philanthropies.
