The Print and Ebook versions of the First Edition of Connecting the Dots are available at the BookBaby BookShop

In Connecting the Dots, systems researcher and ecopsychologist Dave Ewoldt uses his wide breadth of knowledge to examine the underlying causes of our current destructive status-quo, explain how and why a shift is possible, and provide us with numerous non-hierarchical tools that will help facilitate positive, powerful systemic change. His comprehensive framework for coalition building is based on the way natural systems function–because after billions of years of remaining in balance, Nature is the ultimate resource to support and guide our efforts toward a sustainable, life-supportive paradigm.


Reviews for Connecting the Dots

“Dave Ewoldt had a passion for tracing connections-and that´s what leads to insight and understanding. The book he left us is full of insights about how and why we humans drove ourselves into history´s darkest cul de sac, and how we can reverse our way out. Even if you think you already know what´s happening and what needs to be done, you´ll come away from Connecting the Dots feeling more curious, more aware, and better equipped to act on behalf of Earth and future generations.”

Richard Heinberg, Senior Fellow, Post Carbon Institute

“I can’t overstate the importance–even necessity–of this wonderful book. Connecting the Dots is a profoundly sane book, a refuge and inspiration in these difficult and destructive times, and a guide for how to co-create a sustainable future.” 

Derrick Jensen, author of Endgame

To see the world as it could be, we need a roadmap. And a compass by which to orient ourselves. And a walking stick to help us over the rough terrain we’ve stumbled into. As well as a pair of binoculars to see the better lands ahead. David Ewoldt’s book provides all this for those who seek to be the systemic change we want to see in the world. A read for our times and for those who wish to play a part in shaping the times yet to come.
