What People are Saying About This

Patrick Fagan

With an unusual a blend of East and West it comes down squarely on the side of the family and of the fundamental virtues while bringing the student through a very comprehensive overview of the themes of love, character, family and sexuality.

Harville Hendrix

This book is an important contribution to a growing national consciousness. It should be read by everyone, for their own sake and for the love of children. (Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. Author, Getting the Love You Want)

Stephen R. Covey

Caring parents and educators will benefit enormously from this insightful, responsible, research-based analysis. (Stephen R. Covey, Ph.D. Seven Habits of Highly Effective People)

I found the topics, the foundations of character education, the family as the school of love, and challenges facing the youth, as very important in basically creating good heart and character. I applaud the authors who hail from excellent institutions such as the International Educational Foundation, Harvard University, and the most important forum of all, the family. The timing of the book is excellent since we are in a time of such a poverty of morality and confidence, and wealth in the corruption of the soul. When politics and business appear to demonstrate that one can get ahead by not cultivating heart and character, the youth especially need to know that what appears to be getting ahead is only a very wrong path towards an unseeing end. The title of the book is what is needed so much in our civil societies and communities, and this book would benefit all of us. Most importantly, the book speaks of causes and the resolution of conflict in very understandable language that would be of use of all readers. Thank you for giving me a chance to read about how one cultivates heart and character.
