People feel angry and let down by their leaders, as well as by the institutions that dominate their lives: political parties, government bureaucracy, and corporations. Yet the cause of this malaise, according to political-advisor-turned-tech-CEO Steve Hilton, is not being addressed by politicians on the left or the right.

Hilton argues that much of our daily experience--from the food we eat, to the governments we elect, to the economy on which our wealth depends, to the way we care for our health and well-being--has become too big, too bureaucratic, and too distant from the human scale.

More Human sets out a radical manifesto for change, aimed at the root causes of our problems rather than just the symptoms. Whether it's using the latest advances in neuroscience to inform the fight against poverty and inequality, or applying lessons from America's most radical schools to transform our children's education, this book is an agenda for rethinking and redesigning the outdated systems and structures of our politics, government, economy, and society to make them more suited tothe way we want to live our lives today. To make them more human .

// Steve Hilton argues brilliantly that a more human future is within our grasp if we have the courage to reach for it, legislate for it, and care for it. \\
Sayeth the former senior advisor to David Cameron of the UK?!?!
We are forever told such-and-such is within our grasp, yet somehow they neglect to mention the ownership of everything, who the owners are - - just a teensy-weensy detail which would open many doors!
