Editorial Reviews


"Kian's experience as a consultant is most evident in the many ways he's devised to assist his readers to become involved in creating their own plans for improvement. A forceful, engaging program for taking a clear, calming look at an increasingly alarming world." Kirkus Reviews

"The writing here is clear and uncluttered. Practical, intuitive steps for achieving goals under difficult circumstances... Kian's work, while far-reaching in its sourcing, nevertheless feels firmly planted in the current moment. Making compelling references to figures from literature, history, art, and politics, the author presents a blueprint for navigating chaos and centering the self." - BookLife Prize Critics Report
