Overview

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 Anatomy of Peace" shows how to get past the preconceived ideas and self-justifying reactions that keep us from seeing the world clearly and dealing with it effectively. Yusuf al-Falah, an Arab, and Avi Rozen, a Jew, each lost his father at the hands of the other's ethnic cousins. As the story unfolds, we discover how they came together, how they help warring parents and children to come together, and how we too can find our way out of the struggles that weigh us down. The choice between peace and war lies within us. As one of the characters says, "A solution to the inner war solves the outer war as well." This book offers more than hope — it shows how we can prevent the conflicts that cause so much pain in our lives and in the world.

    I Also Recommend:

    Find Out What Is Hurting You First

    Before you can get to the moment where you can honestly say, this is wrong and I need to fix it. You have to first figure out the problem. You first have to know where that baggage that causes the conflict comes from. It's this baggage that we bring into every situation that hurts ourselves and others the most. This book is great for dealing with the problem once we know, but I'd recommend R.A. Clark's When God Stopped Keeping score to figure out what those problems are.

    Delivers on its promise

    If you follow the methods in this book, it will work. It takes some personal courage and self discipline, but the concepts are sound. The book logically lays out why the methods work and then give you practical advice on how to execute. The teaching is done partially through a parable and partially through lessons.

    Very Recommended

    Purchased The Anatomy of Peace for a college course in Anthropology. First required reading that was difficult to put down. Very heartfelt and well written book.

    Read this amazing book! Learn your personal boxes and that hinder your happiness and success, and get out of them!

    This book was fantastic! Through this easy to read, fictional story, we are the students in the classroom. It's gripping, it's explanatory, it's methodical, and it's ALL applicable! Whatever your race, religion, political party, profession, economical or social status, no matter how unique you are or are not, this book can directly improve your way of being, therefore, directly improving the world you live in. I recommend this to everyone! Seriously, read it and enjoy your new life!

    Excellent book - everyone should read it!!

    When I received this book I could not put it down. I read it in one sitting. This book has influenced ALL of my relationships for the better...from my best friends to the cashier I meet in the checkout line. If you are receptive to its teachings it can change your relationships as well....and best of all it is rather easy to do. For any Episcopalians out there this is the instruction manual on how to "Seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself".

    A very helpful analysis of how to practically seek accord with those we oppose.

    I found this book to be an easy read and very helpful in keeping it clear in my mind that if I want to work for peace, both inner and outer, I need to understand myself and others as beings not objects. Very practical diagrams and illustrations. Although I was already thinking along these lines, this book helped to make situations concrete. I put it to use daily. A practical guide to the "I-Thou" relationship.

    Read it and practice it.

    I'm not sure there is a more important volume in print today. The human condition being what it is, this book is the manual for ourselves and all those with whom we interact.

    Verily, verily I would say unto you...

    Seeking wisdom? The kind that empowers you to face the wars in your life? Short of the Bible, I haven't read anything this significant and enlightening for a very long time. It stands head and shoulders above most self-help books in regards to applications to relationships on every level, while weaving a most beguiling story. Do yourself a favor, add this to your top 10 list.
