Book Review

Publisher's Note:

What if conflicts at home, conflicts at work, and conflicts in the world stem from the same root cause? And what if individually and collectively we systematically misunderstand that cause, and unwittingly perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve? Through an intriguing story of parents struggling with their troubled children and with their own personal problems, "The Anato…

Overall Book Review:

he Anatomy of Peace is one of those life-changing books everyone should read. I gave several friends and family members an earful about it before I even finished reading. 

I was reluctant to read a self-help book in a novel format–usually that type of writing doesn’t appeal to me–but this book came so highly recommended that I agreed to give it a try. I’m so glad I did! Almost from the first chapters I started evaluating my relationships and belief systems, and found that there were some pretty obvious changes I could make to the way I think and act in order to make my life richer and my relationships healthier. I can’t recommend the book highly enough. The approach is gentle and nurturing. The philosophy rings true. The suggestions for modified thinking and behavior are doable.

This is one of those books you read and lend until it falls apart, and give as gifts to everyone you care about. 

Warning: This book may induce soul-searching resulting in dramatically-changed thinking and acting, which may result in improved relationships and increased personal success.

About the Reviewer

I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. My mother would often find me curled up in a corner, avoiding chores with a book–or two. When I was growing up, there wasn’t a large selection of YA books. I had children’s books and adult literature to choose from. I’ve come to love YA fiction as an adult and read almost nothing else when I read for pleasure–any genre will do.
