Steven Baum was concerned with the big questions of life and asked others what mattered to them as well. He traveled extensively in order to find an answer. A great variety of people are represented here mostly ordinary and some famous: Miss America, a Tibetan lama, a Turkish shepherd, a cowboy, prostitutes, police and politicians. Their statements range in length from a one-word answer to a page reflecting at times a little thought, while others reflect the depths of the souls. He shares their wisdoms as they were told to him on his sojourn and the sense of meaning derived.

Between 1990-2001, Baum conducted interviews in the following nations: Argentina, Australia, Bahamas, Bhutan, Belize, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Guatemala, Greece, Holland, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Mongolia, Nepal, New Zealand, Norway, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Russia, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Serbia, Sweden, Switzerland, Tahiti, Taiwan, Thailand, Tibet, Turkey, USA. He now shares those interviews with you.
