The Pachyderm Problem is a transforming story and a practical journal. The short story is about an Everyperson called Bupke, who wakes up one morning to find a very big surprise in his bedroom. His perceptions and reactions to The Pachyderm reveal fundamental truths about how we experience and can effectively deal with issues that we don't confront until they are big, big problems. The 120 journal pages (each of which includes a thought-provoking quotation) are for action...to directly apply the lessons of The Pachyderm Problem. It works.
