Web Thinking by Linda Seger

Is it best to be an individualist, competing for that prize we think we have to have? Seger argues that it is rather through our relationships that we find true success.

She presents a new way of thinking, concentrating on our connectedness. She helps readers understand the process of transitioning to web thinking, suggesting we develop new imagery and visualize connecting rather than competing.

This book could be used for renewing reasons for teamwork models and skills. She has included discussion questions at the end of each chapter for group use. The book could also be used on an individual level for personal development. Seger tells of her own spiral downward into depression and how it took her web thinking to find the resources to get out of it.

While Seger writes quit a bit about the spiritual aspect of web thinking, she has a religiously inclusive view. This is something evangelical Christians may find difficult.

This book was written nearly fifteen years ago. Seger's examples and references to people and issues are evidence of its 2002 publication date.

Food for thought: “...we are all surrounded by people who can help us mature into better human beings.” (95)

My rating: 3/5.

Linda Seger has a background in both drama and theology. She has focused her career as an international script consultant, seminar leader in the area of screenwriting, and is the author of nine books on screenwriting. In the last eight years she has also been writing books on spirituality.
