Einstein's Last Message: Saving our world by changing how we think is a work of non-fiction focused on environmental issues in the modern world, and was penned by author Dr. Rod O'Connor. Drawing on history to teach us about the future of our world, this international healthcare researcher and cognitive psychologist utilizes Einstein’s concept of ‘a new type of thinking’ to discuss how we got into such a mess with climate change and habitat destruction, and what can be done to change ourselves, and in doing so, the wider world. So begins a fascinating journey into the realm of psychology in order to understand how decision making works, and what it means for our future.

Author Dr. Rod O'Connor has crafted a really fascinating work that lays out some very complex psychological concepts but does so in a highly accessible way that people can truly understand and take to heart. I was fascinated to see such expert knowledge portrayed, and I felt that the clear, jargon-free prose really aided understanding. The organization of the work was helpful too, serving to build upon concepts in a linear progression that never felt rushed, but also always keeping one eye on the wider perspective issues of the natural world and humanity’s dangerous and destructive potential. What results is a work of great wisdom which brings its message home on a crest of excellent research and critical thinking. Overall, I would highly recommend Einstein's Last Message: Saving our world by changing how we think to all readers, so that they may better understand the world and themselves.
