So, What Next?, by Sylvie Nickels
Following a childhood in World War Two, I have been among those who have enjoyed the longest period of peace in several centuries. Yet the world has never been more troubled.
Bad decisions in the early 20th century, uncontrolled (and uncontrollable) technology, social media, major changes in society and family structures have all contributed; and, perhaps above all, preoccupation with self (and selfies).
This book is mainly a memoir of my life since 1945 and that of my adventurous late husband George Spenceley. It includes many world changes, the Cold War, climbing, long canoe journeys, recovery from addiction . And the hope that our world will recover from the problems with which we have afflicted it.
