Book Signing: "Teeming: How Superorganisms Work to Build Infinite Wealth in a Finite World"
Join author Tamsin Woolley-Barker for a book signing of Teeming: How Superorganisms Work to Build Infinite Wealth in a Finite World

Teeming: How Superorganisms Work to Build Infinite Wealth in a Finite World takes us on a journey into nature’s most ancient and successful organizations. Ants, termites, and honeybees have worked for hundreds of millions of years in huge cities with tens of millions of individuals, compounding wealth from one generation to the next by pooling the diverse and independent efforts and talents of many individuals. Rich hotspots of abundance, regeneration, adaptivity, and resilience result.  TEEMINGis a radically new and deeply biological way to do business on a finite planet, with practical prescriptions for redesigning our organizations and cities to flourish far into the future. By emulating ancient societies that have stood the test of time, we can evolve more adaptive, resilient, and innovative organizations as well. An entertaining and accessible read with profound––and hopeful––implications for a better way of life.
