'Jeremy and Henry's book on new power could not be coming at a better time. With hyper-connectivity enabling new forms of leadership and mobilization, this book challenges all of us to think about the values we hold and how we can all be part of building a more open, equitable and participatory world.' Richard Branson
'Power is shifting as never before, so New Power is addressing a vital issue for our times: how to make the voices and choices of all, not just a few, count for something. Plaudits to the authors for their determination to help shape the future, not just complain about it.' David Miliband
