Is it an intangible concept? An esoteric notion?
Razeghi, a writer,educator, and innovator demonstrates through illustrative storytelling, research from neuroscience and behavioral psychology, the wisdom of such folks as Marshall Nirenberg (who broke the genetic code), Deepak Chopra, and the Dalai Lama, that hope is a verb, a tangible tool, atrait that can be learned. Similar in writing style to Malcolm Gladwell, Andrew makes you ponder and take risks in thought and perception. Whether your interests include business, politics, science, sports, art, or religion, there is something for everyone. If you are a recent graduate of college entering the brave new world of the workforce, a business merchant embarking on a new venture, an individual looking for a new career, or just a student of life, "Hope" is an excellent resource and a good read. Enjoy!
The book is sure to have any reader examining their own life and how it could be made better with more hope, and like Gladwell's writing, it is easy to read and difficult to put down.
And, though it is written for leaders, with Razeghi's belief that leaders are not born, they are made, it has lessons that would benefit any reader, whether an employee, manager, or student.
Razeghi carefully organizes his material within three Parts: Thinking About Believing, Exercising Your Hope Muscles, and Putting Hope to Work. To me, some of the most valuable material in this book is provided in Chapter 8, "Five Stones," as Razeghi discusses the importance of "mise in place" (i.e. putting in place) as a principle by which to guide and inform one's values, perspectives, and behavior. Razeghi identifies and then discusses what he calls "the Five Stones of Wakefulness": Self, Others, Context, Cause, and Effect. Together they provide a solid foundation on which to achieve and then sustain awareness of both ourselves and of our interrelationships with others as they and we struggle to cope with sometimes perilous situations, as they and we share a common cause or vision to achieve objectives which have beneficial impact.Read more ›
