THE NARROW VIEW is one of the most discussed adult and children's books of our time. Featuring a village of people and a tree, the plot focuses on both characters. The village of people live in a very uncomfortable world they have grown accustomed to. But they discover an amazing giant Red Wood tree that offers them a different and more perfect world, a protected world, a world they have always dreamed of, a comfortable world. The people of the village suddenly find themselves happier than they have ever been, until one day...something familiar begins to stir inside their inner being. They aren't exactly sure what it is, but it is familiar. And so they gather in the shade and comfort of the giant Red Wood tree looking up at all its beauty and strength and begin making excuses. And soon the excuses turn to frustration, and the frustration turns to anger, and the anger turns to action. What follows is a very surprising and almost unpredictable reaction based on the only thing they knew, the very thing they have grown accustomed to, their very narrow view. The book is intentionally ambiguous but explodes with an incredible learning lesson of life unadorned. It is the realistic assessment of the human condition and a stark viewpoint of relationships that begin happily, but unpredictably end sadly because one side cannot help but to destroy all that is good...a by-product or habit originating from their own dysfunctional history. The themes reside anywhere between those intended for adults and those for children.

He is known as "the Patron Saint for Missing Kids." In 1993 Baz founded “The Association for the Recovery of Children" (ARC), a non-profit organization comprised of former and active intelligence (CIA), military special operators and law enforcement personnel who rescue missing and abducted American children being held in the US or overseas. ARC's all-encompassing child recovery program comes at no cost to the custodial parents. Baz is well known globally for his expertise and extraordinary skill set.

On the home front, his influence and intriguing reputation has catapulted his career as a welcomed spokesperson among Corporate Leaders, Law Enforcement Organizations, Public Television, Educational Institutes as well as smaller groups like the Brandeis University National Women's Committee, to name a few.
