Editorial Reviews

Review

"...[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.

Captain Jack E. Hoban, USMCR -- Captain Jack E. Hoban, USMCR

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.

Format: Paperback
Finally a book that puts into words what people for so long have been searching for in their lives on natural laws, ethics and values.

This is a book that changes lives. If we were all to apply even a fraction of the lessons Robert Humphrey dishes out in this book we would certainly live in a much more peaceful world.
The teachings in this book changed the way I see the world in all aspects of my life including parenting, teaching, and as member of my community. As a former prison guard, law enforcement officer, and more recently a mentor for troubled youth, I have tested these methods and found them to be nothing but pure truth to their core.

Long an admirer of Jack Hoban, while reading his works I circled back to his two mentors one ninja master and Robert Humphrey. After reading Dr. Humphrey's work it lays the foundation of my passion the warrior-scholar. This work is a treasure trove of knowledge for human relations. Read it. Live it. Profit by your understanding.

I was one of the lucky handful to have met and listened to Dr. Humphrey speak. He was truly a man who "walked the talk." An amazing life told through a series of case stories and clarified field notes, Dr. Humphrey and the editor, Capt. Jack Hoban have woven together a thoughtful and incredibly rational and reasonable argument for the makings of a universal moral and ethical theory for the whole of Humanity. For those whom (the younger generations) the Cold War is something not well understood, remembered or experienced, I highly recommend reading "The Ugly American" so one can get a feel for what it was like to be living during that period ( http://www.amazon.com/The-Ugly-American-Eugene-Burdick/dp/0393318672 ). Values For A New Millennium is not a quick read, it is a thought provoking and soul searching book for those looking to connect with Humanity in a very real way but need to know where to begin --- and end up. As a father and husband, this has been one of the most influential books in my life to know that my kids can and will have a clear and solid foundation starting now and when they are ready to go out into the world and be responsible not only for themselves - but for anyone and everyone they encounter. As the saying goes: "It's a Better Life!" Keep Going! Joe Lau RN, AE-C

The Warriors' Creed

Wherever I walk,
everyone is a little bit safer because I am there.

Wherever I am,
anyone in need has a friend.

Whenever I return home,
everyone is happy I am there.

"It's a better life!"

by Dr. Robert L. Humphrey
