Snippets from the glowing reviews of Fleming's posthumous books:

"Compelling in ways you do not expect ... I'm a sucker for beautiful books, and Lean Logic is a beautiful book ... The Lean Economy is exactly what we need. I couldn't be more certain of anything ... Garnering all sorts of critical plaudits ... Eminently readable ... utterly brilliant ... A complete masterpiece. Kept me up in the night for a week ... Beauty and truth by master of convivial economics David Fleming ... a place I can duck into now and again, to re-find hope ... I'm something of a cynic, and yet even I feel a fresh sort of excitement coming off of these ideas ... quite astounding."

Video of the books discussed by Rob Hopkins, Jonathon Porritt, Shaun Chamberlin, the full reviews, as well as new footage of Fleming himself, all available here.

I just watched the YouTube video of him at his 2006 Schumacher College Earth Talk. We've lost a great man, full of great ideas clearly and simply explained, lovely person too.

The video could have been twice as long for me.

Lean Logic named in the Times Higher Education Books of the Year 2016, among many many other glowing reviews, still pouring in :D

And for emordnilap, more footage of David available here.

It looks as though his work is finally having the impact he hoped.
