This gives hope for the future. Resilience is the capacity to survive and return from disaster, something we need now and are going to need even more as our world changes. Rigidity and hierarchical patterns limit responses when flexibility and speed count. Chapter 5 tells the story of a response to the Haitian earthquake that developed almost spontaneously to include volunteers around the world helping to collect information on the ground in Haiti, translate it and return it to the first responders. A very exciting book to read.
