A PROFOUNDLY OPTIMISTIC BOOK THAT REAFFIRMS TIMELESS VALUES IN THE PURSUIT OF A FULFILLING LIFE.

THE AUTHOR OFFERS BRILLIANT INSIGHTS ABOUT COMMUNITY BUILDING, WHILE REMINDING US THAT WE ALL HAVE A ROLE IN DESIGNING A FUTURE THAT WORKS. A RIVETING INTRODUCTORY CHAPTER ABOUT SWABACK'S EVERYDAY LIFE WHILE WORKING WITH FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT ENERGIZES THIS BOOK RIGHT FROM THE START. INSPIRING!

Review:

Inspiring! This book makes beauty the core value in meeting the unprecedented challenges of our national and global crises. Vernon Swaback offers a completely different way to appreciate beauty as a transcendent vision of a successful future by design. Over and over again I found myself fascinated by his experience with Frank Lloyd Wright, and awed by his wide ranging knowledge and wisdom. I treasure this book!" --Dr. Richard Farson
