Overview

A biography unlike any other, The Mother of Invention tells the story of every human being now on the earth . . . through the telling of the life story of futurist and visionary Barbara Marx Hubbard. We are all moving through the same process, the book and its subject declare. It is the process of the birthing of our species. In what may very well be a new literary style, this biography begins in the future, unraveling Barbara's story backward: from December 22, 2012, to the date of her birth. Throughout the book are special sections inviting us to explore how we may directly apply what Barbara has observed and learned during her remarkable 80-year journey . . . to our own daily lives. On this journey, we will witness Barbara as she became one of the first women ever to have her name placed in nomination for the vice presidency of the United States by a major political party, traveled to Russia as a cultural ambassador for peace, visited the Oval Office and asked the President a question that he could not answer, and developed a deep acquaintanceship with the American space program. Today, we continue to find her at the leading edge of contemporary thought and innovative action regarding our construction of the future. In a very real sense, the story of Barbara Marx Hubbard is the story of the future of all of us, rendering it one of the most relevant and compelling modern biographies of our time.

Meet the Author

With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale Donald Walsch spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning before beginning his now-famous Conversation with God series. These books have been translated into 37 languages, touching millions and inspiring important changes in people's day-to-day lives. Seven of his 27 books have reached the New York Times bestsellers list.

Neale lives in Ashland, Oregon, with his wife, poet Em Claire. In 2001 he founded Humanity's Team, which he describes as a worldwide civil-rights movement for the soul (HumanitysTeam.org). In 2005 he began work on putting into place a global education program, The School of the New Spirituality (SchooloftheNewSpirituality.com). In 2010 he created the CwG Spiritual Mentoring Program for individuals seeking to bring their highest spiritual understanding into their everyday lives.

    This is Unquestionably Neale Donald Walsch's Second Best Effort!

    Barbara Marx Hubbard's out of the box thinking and futuristic insights have resonated and shaped the direction of millions of lives, including mine. This remarkable lady, who has held the courage of her convictions from an early age to elder, is now being exquisitely honored. Neale Donald Walsch pulled out all the stops on this one. In his unique writing format he succeeded in also creating a guide for the consciously evolving reader. This effort is even more. It paints a multidimensional picture of Barbara's life and passion; the author wielding the ultimate human touch.
