Australia's most respected and experienced social researcher, Hugh Mackay, believes something is wrong with the state of the nation and in the lives of its citizens.

Drawing on his 50 years' experience of listening to Australians talk about their lives and watching some big trends play out, Mackay shows how an unprecedented run of economic growth has failed to deliver a more stable or harmonious society. Individualism is rampant. Income inequality is growing. We are more socially fragmented, more anxious, more depressed, more overweight, more medicated, deeper in debt and increasingly addicted.

Mackay remains optimistic and determined to be part of the solution. He offers some compelling proposals for a more compassionate society and a call to action to everyone who loves Australia enough to want to make it a better place for us all. You may not agree with everything he says, but you won't be able to ignore the intelligence of his argument or feel unmoved by the passion of his convictions.
