"Don't be fooled, "The Joy Compass" is not the latest 'feel good' book--though it certainly will point the way to living a life of mindfulness, purpose and fulfillment. Donald Altman's 'compass' comes from his years of practicing in his own life what he teaches in this book and facilitates for his clients and students. He describes the various paths and practices it takes to live life as a creator, rather than a victim to all the forces in the world that conspire to steer us away from a life of choices and vitality. His simple--yet profound--writing rhythm offers 'content, practice, and reflection.' This is the 'CPR' our modern life needs for resuscitation!"
--David Emerald, co-founder of the Bainbridge Leadership Center and author of "The Power of TED" (The Empowerment Dynamic) and co-author of "TED for Diabetes: A Health Empowerment Story "
