This thought-provoking book examines the true source of personal power, how our quest for success and achievement originated, and how it affects us today.
So, what is the true source of authentic power? Offering a detour from the dead end of this "buy more, be more" culture, the authors demonstrate why the traditional routes to power are accessible only for an elite few. Wrapping warm, profound stories of empowerment around an extensive body of research, Road Map to Power is your guide to a life of dignity, satisfaction, and happiness--and a guide to raising resilient children..
