Philosopher Roman Krznaric discusses his most recent book – The Good Ancestor: A Radical Prescription for Long-Term Thinking.

His new book, “The Good Ancestor: A Radical Prescription for Long-Term Thinking”, was published in July 2020, and has been described by U2’s The Edge as ‘the book our children’s children will thank us for reading’.
