John William Gardner (October 8, 1912 – February 16, 2002) was Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) under President Lyndon Johnson.

John William Gardner (October 8, 1912 – February 16, 2002) was Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) under President Lyndon Johnson. He was a strong advocate for citizen participation who founded Common Cause and became known as "the father of campaign finance reform". A native of California, Gardner attended Stanford University. As an undergrad he set several swimming records and won a number of Pacific Coast championships, and graduated "with great distinction.

Shame on me and kudos for the author: Gardner never pretended that renewal, either for society or individuals, would be easy. One person found this helpful.

Self Renewal Hardcover – December, 1964. by John William Gardner (Author). This is the most exciting and significant book that I have read in years.

by John William Gardner. A deeply perceptive (short) paperback on the self-renewal of individuals and societies; why some decay and others remain innovative and creative. Now in his 90th year, Mr. Gardner continues to teach at Stanford. In clear, concise terms the author sets down the factors that produce deterioration in people and societies. He maintains they are caused mostly by failure to deal with change.

John William Gardner. Gardner's is not a 'how-to-do-it' book for the conduct of modern society. It is something rarer these days and more basic: a 'why-to-do-it' book. Its impact on many readers is bound to be challenging and stimulating and even inspirational. Clark Kerr, Science show more.

In his classic treatise Self-Renewal, John W. Gardner examines why great societies thrive and die. He argues that it is dynamism, not decay, that is dramatically altering the landscape of American society. Gardner cautions that a society must court the kinds of change that will enrich and strengthen it, rather than the kind of change that will fragment and destroy it. A society’s ability to renew itself hinges upon its individuals.

The only stability possible is stability in motion. John William Gardner. John Gardner has some interesting observations on society and how it must continue to change to sustain itself - and most importantly, individuals must be free to lead this change.

I remember meeting John Gardner as if it were yesterday. No book of his affected me more than Self-Renewal: The Individual and the Innovative Society. In Self-Renewal, John writes about the contribution of individual innovators in renewing societies

I remember meeting John Gardner as if it were yesterday. It was 1989 and I was an MBA student at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Written in 1963, it still held great relevance for me in 1989. In Self-Renewal, John writes about the contribution of individual innovators in renewing societies.

The author was a former cabinet secretary and the founder of Common Cause.

Good price & in condition stated.

An amazingly good book! I would recommend it to anyone. John W. Gardner was Secretary of Health Education & Welfare under LBJ, recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a founder of Common Cause. Would that we had at least one person of his caliber in the Cabinet today.

The book itself is wonderful...and timeless. The condition of the book...how shall I say this....seasoned; much marked up and highlighted. Perhaps I shouldn't have expected much better condition for the super bargain price.
