Wow! The newest,most comprehensive bible for builders ofintentionalcommunities.Covers every aspect with vital information and dozens ofexamples of how successful communities faced the challenges and created their shared livesout oftheir visions.The cautionary tales ofsadder experiences and how communitiesfail,will help in avoiding the pitfalls.Not since I wrote the Foreword to Ingrid Komar's
