For over three decades, Carolyn Jabs has written about families, ethics, environmental issues and the Internet. Her work has been published in dozens of magazines including Reader's Digest, Newsweek, Redbook and the New York Times. She was a Contributing Editor at Home PC and Family PC, and her monthly column, Growing Up Online, appears in parenting publications across the country. Her book, The Heirloom Gardener, is often cited as one of the inspirations for the revival of heirloom vegetables.
Carolyn's most recent project is a book about how to restore constructive cooperation in the face of conflict and change. Written as a conversation between a teacher and a learner, the book and grew out of work Carolyn did while earning her M.A. in Practical Ethics from Bowling Green State University. She and co-author, Dr. Donald Scherer, plan to release the book early in 2015.
If most people try to do the right thing most of the time, why does cooperation often fall short? In Cooperative Wisdom, Don Scherer and Carolyn Jabs engage in a spirited discussion of this vexing question and introduce readers to five virtues that crack open stubborn problems and provide a framework for innovative, durable and rewarding collaboration.
