    Collaboration is increasingly difficult and increasingly necessary Often, to get something done that really matters to us, we need to work with people we don't agree with or like or trust. Adam Kahane has faced this challenge many times, working on big issues like democracy and jobs and climate change and on everyday issues in organizations and families. He has learned that our conventional understanding of collaboration—that it requires a harmonious team that agrees on where it's going, how it's going to get there, and who needs to do what—is wrong. Instead, we need a new approach to collaboration that embraces discord, experimentation, and genuine cocreation—which is exactly what Kahane provides in this groundbreaking and timely book.

    If you are tired of being on a diet all the time, if you have had enough of dietary supplements and “magic potions”, or if you feel that you are constantly searching for the lifestyle you were meant to follow, but you cannot achieve more than temporary successes... then this book is for you!
     
    There is one thing you have not taken into consideration yet: you are a special living being who has been equipped with a host of useful and viable features thanks to millions of years of evolution.
     
    In nature, we had to rely on ourselves, and our body knew the solution for every situation. The problem is that we became estranged from ourselves, from our true nature, which causes civilisational problems on both physical and psychological levels.
     
    This book is about how we can utilise the ancient knowledge of our body to return to our harmonious state, purely through natural methods. We can do this with the help of proper nutrition, exercise and the appropriate environmental conditions.
     
    “I have tried every slimming diet, but I couldn’t escape the ‘yo-yo effect’. Ever since I started following the AKB Way as a lifestyle, I have managed to keep losing weight but without starving, while my acute enteritis has also disappeared completely. I wish you all the best and a great success! :-)” Andrea H., Budapest
     
    “I am undergoing treatment with dialysis because of a serious renal problem. I had only been following the suggested lifestyle for three weeks when the chief physician saw my lab results and asked me if I could share what I eat and how, as he would like to suggest it to other patients. Alongside the fact that I had already stopped taking two medications (antihypertensive and diuretic) over 3 weeks, this convinced me completely… Transplantation became a more distant option for me, and I am very grateful for that!” László M., Üröm
     
    “I do sports actively, and I gave myself one month to try this lifestyle. My performance improved significantly – quite understandably – and my sense of wellbeing and energies became enhanced too. I stopped taking expensive dietary supplements, which gave me a great sense of freedom.” Balázs K., Budapest
     
    “With the help of the new diet, my bodyweight has returned to normal. I sleep more soundly, I wake up in the morning energised and I don’t get tired or lethargic during the day either.” Róbert P., Piliscsaba
