Thumos is a big concept. Its origin can be traced back to a specific time and place. It began in Richardson, Texas, near Custer Park, few weeks before the September 11 attacks. The original idea was not further developed until fifteen years later, by one of the most unlikely pairs of co-writers in a town 1800 miles away. In the last chapter, they wrote: "Legacy is what you do that impacts later generations." With the potential for the greatest impact in the least number of words, their ten chapters might turn out to be, how dare to say it now, the finest legacy of the 21st century. In that case, Thumos would be the word that changes the world.
Thumos is onboarding for humanity. Onboarding is the mechanism through which new members of an organization acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors to become effective organizational insiders. When the organization is humanity as a whole, its onboarding process is spelled out by this book. Thumos is a necessary book for every member of our humanity. It is an imperative book for leaders, managers, and teachers.
Thumos is indispensable for students as it, without resorting to gimmickry, gives a direct, practical, and cogent answer to basic questions in life. Ri4C-Book-701
