"An extraordinary assemblage of beautiful thinking, it sets the tone for a healing mind-set which is so necessary to contemporary corporate culture. It is also just long enough and just short enough to be grasped and appreciated as a whole message.

For 2017 I would advocate that organisations take this message and spread it through the machinery of what makes up the working parts of the enterprise. It’s like a good lubricant - it doesn’t need abundance to keep the engine working freely without overheating – this is enough and essential that it is spread evenly and universally.

Bravo my friend!"

GERALD WAGNER, PH.D. DIRECTOR, INSPIRED ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURES, INC."This is a masterpiece of work and I hope the public recognizes that"

PAT GRAYSON, HEARTSPACE BOOKS: "Excellent. In many ways is most profound" 

Ancient wisdom remains most relevant in the business environment today and has stood the test of time. It is as if those pearls of wisdom bubbles to the top or using a gold panning analogy, once the water and dirt is washed away, the gold remains, forever.
