91 pages with several full-color images including a special "Films with Thematic Tie-ins" section


This non-fiction piece published in 2007 represents a unique guidebook for how to influence significant change—a form of social activism on a personal and familial level—one positive thought and action at a time.  It does so by weaving together quotations from notable authors like Stephen R.

Some of the thought-provoking topics include:

*  Emotional intimacy
*  The 6 types of violence
*  Victimism vs. free choice
*  Gratitude as a key to happiness

*  The commercialism of love
*  Combating excess
*  Chivalric devotion revisited
*  Honoring our loved ones
*  Honoring nature
*  The "Universal Human Component"
*  Intentionality
*  Your 15 personal rights, & others  

By integrating several pivotal concepts into an organic and reflective treatise, this concise book
empowers us to transform what is most important in our lives and the world.
