The Anatomy of Peace : How to Resolve the Heart of Conflict
"The Anatomy of Peace" will instill hope and inspire reconciliation. Through a series of moving stories about once-bitter enemies reunited, it shows us how we routinely misunderstand the causes of conflict - and perpetuate the very problems we're trying to solve. "The Anatomy of Peace" shows you how to: focus on helping things go right, rather than 'fixing' things that go wrong; think about others as people with fears of their own, not obstacles in your way; stop worrying about how the world sees you; and, learn to move away from blame and bitterness Welcome to a world without conflict.
