I have been an avid reader for many years, have studied effective leaders throughout history, and have been writing editorials and letters to newspapers and other publications. I am an optimist by nature and believe most people just need to be encouraged to bring out the best in them and we find that there are many heroic and honorable people living all around us. I have written this book discussing what has shaped and influenced my views of the world. Perhaps you may relate to some of the stories I share. I also write about some suspicious deaths that have taken place the more I have gotten involved making my views public. It seems common sense to me that strategies I discuss could be implemented in the culture, and in the major political parties or a third political party could be started. This would help us in "Turning the Tide" for the next generation!
