Inspired by his own powerful experiences during the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s and other social movements in the '70s, '80s, and '90s, Stephan Schwartz spent 16 years researching successful social transformations, uncovering the science and the patterns behind them all. He found that there are three ways to create social change. The first is the advancement of technology and science. The second--change compelled by physical power--is almost always coercive and violent and, for those reasons, not long lasting. The third avenue of change he discovered--the most successful and enduring--is one brought about by something so subtle it is often not taken seriously: small individual choices based on integrity and shared intention.

Revealing how the dynamics of change are learnable, Schwartz explains the 8 laws of individual and social behavior that can enable any person or small group--even ordinary people without great wealth, official position, or physical power--to bend the arc of history and create successful lasting transformation. He shares the stories of individuals who have actually changed history, such as Martin Luther King Jr., Benjamin Franklin, Mother Teresa, and Mahatma Gandhi, detailing how they implemented the strategies and tactics of the 8 laws to achieve their success.

The author explores research in the fields of medicine, neuroscience, biology, and quantum physics to reveal the science of how these laws of change work. He explains why compassionate and life-affirming changes have the most enduring impact and shows how each of the 8 laws cultivates a sense of "beingness" in the individual, empowering your integrity and connecting you to something greater than yourself--the key to lasting change on the personal, societal, and global levels.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"To reveal the human element that is so critical in the dynamics of change has given us a great gift for our work in student debt relief. Stephan Schwartz has captured the essence of community action, and the world will benefit immeasurably from learning it." * Mary Green Swig, cofounder of the National Student Debt Jubilee Project *
"No one tracks human megatrends better than Stephan Schwartz does in his Schwartz Reports. Now, in his The 8 Laws of Change, he has given us a sweeping, coherent view of ways in which we can meet our world's primary challenges. He has done us a wondrous service." * Michael Murphy, founder of the Esalen Institute Center for Theory & Research *
"If you are concerned about proliferating social, cultural, and planetary crises, read The 8 Laws of Change. This book shows how Margaret Mead could say, `Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.'" * Roger Nelson, director of the Global Consciousness Project *
"Finally, a book that shows us how lasting change for social good really happens--by starting with our own thoughts and minds! A luminous contribution to social and moral progress." * Wayne B. Jonas, M.D., president and CEO of the Samueli Institute *
"In my lifetime I have had the pleasure (although I use that word with reservations) of being the catalyst for someone to dramatically change their life twice. It is a profoundly humbling experience to be the carrier of such powerful energy, and to see it manifest so vividly. I expected The 8 Laws of Change to be a guidebook to making that kind of experience a possibility (if not an actuality) again. What I found instead was both far more powerful, and more subtle. Whether you want to be the newest Rosa Parks, a good example for your kids, or just join a group already moving to create change that you want to see in the world. The 8 Laws of Change is worth reading, assimilating, and (dare I say it?) distributing to all. This is not a book full of easy answers, nor should it be. Strongly recommended." * Facing North, Lisa Mc Sherry, December 2015 *
"Whether you want to be the newest Rosa Parks, a good example for your kids, or just join a group already moving to create change that you want to see in the world. The 8 Laws of Change is worth reading, assimilating, and (dare I say it?) distributing to all." * Facing North, Lisa McSherry, February 2016 *
[How] social transformation can occur without wealth, power, or force. . . . The 8 Laws of Change is a tour de force that will inspire and empower. * Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. *
"In The 8 Laws of Change, Stephan shares his insights to creating social change for personal, societal, and global transformation. He reveals the science of how these laws of change work to empower your life." * Deepak Chopra, author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success *
"The 8 Laws of Change is written by a sensational man and teacher, Stephan Schwartz. This book is a must-read for anyone wanting to change their lives personally or create change on a collective scale.Stephan clearly discusses the blocks to positive change and how to overcome them to attain interpersonal peace and peace on the planet. This book is a treasure trove of wisdom to draw on over a lifetime." * Judith Orloff, M.D., author of Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Trans *
"I know of no book that is comparable to Stephan Schwartz's The 8 Laws of Change. This book is a loving, compassionate, life-affirming gift from a great mind, someone who cares deeply about our future. All genuine wisdom is simple, clear, inspiring, and beautiful--the hallmarks of The 8 Laws of Change. Quite simply, this book left me pleasantly stunned and happily inspired. You will be too." * Larry Dossey, M.D., author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness a *
"The 8 Laws of Change addresses the most important question in the world now and, like Charles Eisenstein's work in sacred economics, is truly unique and hopeful." * Bill Kauth, coauthor of We Need Each Other: Building Gift Community *
