The Way of the Owl begins by reminding us that conflict is part of all life on Earth. From there, it takes us on a flight through human relations, through the nature of conflict. The reader lands with lessons from nature, lessons that pepare us to better meet conflict, even to use conflict to advantage of all involved. Yes, there are enemies, but they need not be despised. Better to understand them, to learn from them, to be energized and improved by them.
The Way of the Owl is a classic because it entertains us, and leave us better for the experience. Few books do that, and few are as respected by its readers. I am grateful to be one of them.
