This book shows the absolute necessity for individual and social transformation and the absolute necessity for honesty in order to bring it about. Climbing down from the ivory tower of philosophers to tackle the problems that vex real people - lying about income taxes, a spouse's infidelity, a terminal diagnosis for a parent or child, the sudden loss of a job, the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks - the authors give us a blueprint for living fully, authentically and honestly in a world full of lies. And they fearlessly confront the changes we need in governance to deal with the social tragedies that focus the attention of today's world.
Their message of honesty offers real hope. Yet it does not gloss over the courage and conviction required to make lasting changes. The authors show that just as great personal tragedy often sparks positive growth if we're willing to face it, great social tragedy can also serve as a pivotal opportunity for positive social transformation.

It was inspiring and hopeful to witness honest dialogue between two committed human beings from different backgrounds, with different styles of communication, and different beliefs arrive at some simple but profound truths without compromising themselves or ideas. A model for how personal and societal transformation can occur and facilitate the much needed creation of compassionate policies, when one is willing to be honest and stay engaged beyond the discomfort created by the illusive differences that 'lie on the surface'. Honest dialogue is the destination.....Honest To God a map.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
