ABOUT THE BOOK:

This powerful and lyrical work, at once a beautifully poetic memoir and an exploration of the various ways we live in the world, explains violence as a pathology that touches every aspect of our lives, and indeed affects all aspects of life on earth.

PRAISE:

“Singular, compelling and courageously honest, this book is more than just a poignant memoir of a harrowingly abusive childhood. It relates the extraordinary journey of one man striving to save his own spirit and our planet’s. … His visceral, biting observations always manage to lead back to his mantra: ‘Things don’t have to be the way they are’.”
