On the Serendipity Road is an inspirational, positive and optimistic book that encourages the reader to approach life with a venturesome attitude. The authors are extremely well-travelled, well-read and successful people from two generations (Hine is in his 80s and Peate in his 40s). The text is rich with stories of serendipitous events from history and personal experience. It documents well that those who venture forth open themselves to unanticipated discoveries and wonders. Sample chapters include: Preparing for the Journey; Getting Started; Bumps, Bruises and Bridges Out; Side Road Surprises; On Missing Serendipity: The Pursuit of Unhappiness; When Going There is Better Than Getting There; Trail Blazers on the Serendipity Road; Laughing All the Way; The Deeper Dimension of Serendipity.

Review:

"The authors of this inspiring book are both healers who have helped many persons for whom this modern world has become a difficult ordeal. From their worldwide travel in many cultures and their reading-in-depth of countless books they have sifted dozens of vignettes of varied life experiences that can be helpful to others. From their experiences they have distilled this wealth of background knowledge into an easily read series of chapters. My first, and continuing, reaction has been that the book is a "treasure," a source of inspiration and guidance...

"There is help and inspiration throughout this little volume for many individuals... Valuable lessons spring from each essay and make the collection a striking addition to inspirational literature." -- Fred Harcleroad, Ph.D.
