Tough problems usually don't get solved peacefully. Either a stalemate occurs, or the person or groups with power--authority, money, guns--impose their solutions. But there are other ways. In Solving Tough Problems, Kahane explains why our ordinary ways of solving problems--expert-driven, piecemeal and best practice--cannot work for solving the complex problems we increasingly face, and demonstrates the methods that actually work."This breakthrough book addresses the central challenge of our time: finding a way to work together to solve the problems we have created." (Nelson Mandela)

The author provides many stories of his extensive consultancy experience, but the essence of his formula really only takes about 3 pages to describe completely.
That's not to say the book isn't useful, only that it reads more like a travel guide for TED talks types; lots of exotic locations and big idea meetings, very little in the way of practice. Be honest, open and willing to put aside prejudices and biases - and stop me if you'd heard this before.
