Alex's life has taken many shifts and turns, many of which are reflected in the variety of books available on Amazon. Dr. Alex Bennet is co-founder with her partner Dr. David Bennet of the Mountain Quest Institute (MQI), a research and retreat center nestled in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia dedicated to helping individuals achieve personal and professional growth and organizations create and sustain high performance in a rapidly-changing, uncertain and increasingly complex world.

She has degrees in Human and Organizational Systems, Human Development, Management for Organizational Effectiveness, English and Marketing. Dr. Bennet is affiliated with several Universities in the US, is a Professor at Bangkok University, and is part of the international “KM Dream Team” launching BU’s new Ph.D. program in Knowledge and Innovation Management.

The last 2 1/2 years Alex and David have explored the mystery of the "Myst", a phenomena in which their internal and external worlds collide. With a focus on balance and integration, they find themselves in an ever-expanding Universe of knowledge and experience, which provides the passion for their books.
