I found Turning It Around to be simple yet profound -- a refreshing breath of fresh air offering unique perspectives. The author does not advocate giving up anything, but rather, shows that learning things in a different order beginning in early childhood, can make a positive difference in our families, our communities and ultimately, in the world of the future.
Allin decries the fact that we don't teach much about what life is, to our young people. Instead, we insist on keeping them innocent as children for as long as possible, then wonder why they can't cope with the stresses of adulthood when they grow up. Turning It Around encourages teaching children what it means to be an adult and how to cope with adult situations before they are in crisis, rather than trying to repair the damage afterwards.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who truly cares about children and is interested in teaching them principles that will last a lifetime. With its revolutionary approach to today's problems, Turning It Around should become must reading for parents, educators, professionals and politicians.
Providing simple direct truths toward living a quality life from the inside first, allows a quality to our outer life that will cause us each to flourish. Looking beyond the status quo of living life by someone else's standards and experiences, each reader can access exactly where they may really want to be in life and where they are right now.
Bill shares the great possibilities beyond the constraining perspectives that are forced upon our life; sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly. If you are not taught and directed by someone else, you have to teach and direct yourself. It is not impossible.
Quality in thinking, brings a quality in living. It is that simple. Bill provokes change and provides simple direct ways to change. Starting with solutions anyone can take on personally and become their own expert at achieving. From the home to the governments a social revolution in thinking can take place, that will ultimately benefit the world.
Recommended for the young and older reader audience alike.
