"...[A] strong values system is the most precious weapon of all. Nobody understood this more than Bob Humphrey...." -- General Charles C. Krulak, 31st Commandant of the United States Marine Corps
"Bob Humphrey's Life Values theory represents the clearest...explanation of human nature in the last three thousand years of philosophy." -- Colman Genn, Center for Educational Innovation and former Superintendant, New York City School System
"Professor Humphrey's fresh look at human nature gives us...methods to break down walls between groups in conflict...." -- William S. Sessions, former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation
I first encountered Professor Robert L. Humphrey about fifteen years ago as a graduate student in San Diego, California. I was taking a Masters Degree in Business Administration, and I wondered how "Cross-Cultural Relations" could be justified as a bona-fide course requirement. I was an active duty Marine Officer at that time and had been, literally, around the world. I had heard about enough of the "touchy-feely" bromides that passed for enlightened liberalism. Frankly, I was a hostile audience.
Suddenly, however, as Bob Humphrey talked, I felt that prickly sensation on the back of my neck. It was powerful, and really quite physical. The things that he said, the stories he told, touched me in a way that has changed me forever. I was stunned to hear him explain, clearly and matter-of-factly, the meaning of life. He called his theory variously "The Life Value," or Life Values, Dual Life Value or Balanced Life Value. I sometimes think of them, now, simply as "Living Values."
As I came to know him and his personal history, I was amazed to hear that he had addressed, literally, hundreds of thousands of people over the years. His Life Value Theory and teaching methods had been used successfully to stop violence and promote cross-cultural harmony, world-wide.

About the Author
Humphrey is a graduate of Wisconsin University, Harvard Law School, and the Fletcher School of Diplomacy. From experiences of childhood in the Great Depression, trips as a teenager in the Panamanian Merchant Marines, national-class boxing, the awe-inspiring sights of selfless sacrifice on Iwo Jima, and finally, fifteen years in overseas ideological warfare, Humphrey observed that universal values exist.
