    Complete Conduct Principles for the 21st Century

    The most important books on conduct in the Eastern culture, regarded as the 'Bibles' of that culture, were created some millenniums ago. The situation of the Western culture is similar. Other books of this subject are for the 20th century or earlier, too. The human society of the 21st century will be tremendously different from that 'now', needless to say 'the past'. What is good conduct in the 21st century? 'Complete Conduct Principles for the 21st Century' is exactly the new and right book people need for preparing personal conduct for the new century. Unlike most books of this subject, it is not a religious book, nor is a collection of old conduct rules. It evidently results from Dr. John Newton's long-term research.

    Complete Conduct Principles for the 21st Century

    Having already read numerous books on conduct and education for my professional need, I am delighted to see some special features of 'Complete Conduct Principles for the 21st Century' by Dr. John Newton. Some of them have already been mentioned by other reviewers. Here I like to share my view with people regarding only the following two points, although there are many other special features which have not yet been mentioned by reviewers. First. I am particularly interested in the materials associated with the Eastern culture in the book, which few books of this subject cover. The Western people really need to read those. They may help solve the problems the Western culture can not. Furthermore, Dr. Newton carefully and wonderfully blended some best concepts, minds, souls and spirits in both the Eastern and the Western cultures (the two are quite different), and generated some unprecedented results. These will be needed by the new human society in the 21st century, and may also help solve some important and difficult problems. Second. While most other books of this subject are too lengthy and verbose and/or with too many special terminologies, this book is well designed to suit most people. Frankly speaking, in the new century most people will be too busy to patiently read and digest a whole serious book. To them, regarding conduct, an easy, simple, clear, convenient and self-contained handbook is more useful and helpful. The book is just so designed. This is praiseworthy.

    Complete Conduct Principles for the 21st Century

    How astonished and sad when we, the Americans, heard an item of school violence news! These endless tragedies happened again and again in the past several years. Today's students will be tomorrow's pillars of the state. Thus this is really the most important national crisis our nation is facing! In fact, this problem will spread into many other countries in the 21st century if they do nothing to prevent it. Can the problem of school violence be solved? How can it be solved? Gun control? School security actions? I agree on Dr. John Newton's foresight: the most effective and proper way to solve the problem is appropriate conduct education. 'Complete Conduct Principles for the 21st Century' by Dr. John Newton is the very book that can effectively help solve the problem of school violence in a right way. If students, teachers and parents can learn the conduct principles in this book well, then that 'unsolvable' problem will be solved. It is not difficult at all to learn them, because this book is a simple, easy, clear, convenient and self-contained handbook, well designed to suit most people.

    Complete Conduct Principles for the 21st Century

    The 21st century --- what an exciting century! However, it is also a dangerous one! The rates of drug abuses, suicide, mental illnesses, crimes and so on, have tremendously increased for the last half century (small fluctuations are neglected). By a scientific measurement of people's minds, they have been going in the negative direction. If we do not act, in the 21st century human beings will have very bad consequence. Indeed, the human society in the new century will be very different than that now. Facing the new society, we really have the new challenge: What is good conduct in the 21st century? Hence, 'Complete Conduct Principles for the 21st Century' by Dr. John Newton is definitely needed by people now. It not only helps solve some most important problems, but also helps people prepare appropriate conduct for the 21st century. Understandably, good conduct induces many benefits for each person. Dr. John Newton is the first scholar that scientifically discusses, in this book, the relation between conduct and health and points out good conduct may benefit health, based on his long-term research. This is one of many novel points of this book. The conduct principles in this book are complete, while other books of the same subject are not. They cover not only what a person should do but also what any one of us should not do --- especially about the faults people make frequently and easily and particularly in the 21st century. I agree with Dr. Newton, inspiredly, and wish to share my view with all people --- let's work together to build a nicer century!
