I have been exposed to bits and pieces of Spiral Dynamics and even at one point tried to read the book co-authored by Don Beck, (but found it too heavy going). I have found this audio really excellent. It already has me thinking differently about all sorts of things, reacting differently to people and looking seriously at the way I work.
It has also left me feeling quite optimistic. Here at last is a way of looking at the enormous difficulties that face human kind all over the planet that can offer practically useful ways to get ourselves out of the mess we are.
It does however, require an openness of mind obviously not available to all its reviewers! Not everyone will be able to "get it" (as the theory itself suggests), but for those ready for it, this could be the first step in a profound change in thinking that will allow us to become part of the solution instead of remaining part of the problem.

If you are curious about why we do what we do, this is a great resource. The lecture style and Clare Graves audio make this a wonderful audio book experience.

A Texan academic's narration of this series of his lectures, required me to have to listen hard. The pace of delivery had me hitting the 1.5 x speed button,but the accent does not take it.
The contents of these lectures are an excellent introduction to the subject, which is validated for me by the South African evidence.
Which should mean a Nobel prize, and probably explains why I had to listen to it several times, and will be buying the Kindle, as this deep subject may not be best presented in this format.

I had heard of spiral dynamics, Don Beck and Clare Graves some years ago and this was my first exposure to the book. I found Don, his writing and speaking fascinating, very insightful and pragmatic. I’d read and studied Ken Wilber for some years and I love the idea of the spiral and making sure to appeal to each group of people at their development point on the spiral. Can’t wait now to read Don’s original book. Thank you.
I'm really glad I got this audio book and took the time to listen to it all. Don Beck's work is deeply insightful and helped me develop my understanding of Clare Graves' work and the Spiral Dynamics system. I use this system as part of my coaching work, and I will be recommending this book to others.
