"The Power of Ren does an amazing job of integrating ancient spiritual and philosophical traditions with modern day success stories in business, leadership development and personal well-being. A powerful read, this book really illustrates that the change in attitude that precipitates a change of "heart" is as ancient as the winds, and yet completely relevant and impactful to the world we live in today."
Pamela Richarde, President, International Coach Federation, Master Certified Coach

"Tapping the deep wisdoms of the East and the West, The Power of Ren provides a unique, practical, and inspirational synthesis useful to anyone from the West doing business in China. It is also profoundly useful to managers and citizens throughout China as they create a glowing future for their economy and country. Eva Wong is brilliant."

"The Power of Ren is a remarkable book with an oasis of rich, centuries-old wisdom gleaned from the earliest and most influential "coaches" in the history of the world. The awareness of, and commitment to, the power of the individual human being is the basis for the Ren Coaching Model and this book envelops the reader with the same respect and care. It sets the path for the next important step in every coach's development and subsequently affecting the lives of thousands of clients whom the coaches will impact throughout the world. An extraordinary coach, entrepreneur and visionary, Eva has now brought a special gift to the coaching profession with The Power of Ren."
Bobette Reeder, Past President, International Coach Federation, Master Certified Coach
