About this title


Why are gas prices so high? Don't you wish you could do something about them? Do they seem beyond your control? Frustrated? Well, this book suggests something tangible that you can do about high gas prices. Slow down and drive at the speed limit! Follow the charming story of one family who tried just that, and see the miraculous result. This book will change your life, and you will change the world. Read it and respond. You'll be glad you did!

The book follows the growth of Claire Atwater and her Nova Scotian family over a three-year period. It starts with a discussion of gas prices, and forcing them lower by slowing down to drive at the speed limit. It evolves to a spiritual plane on which people slow down to simplify their lives and take responsibility for the world. The speed limit movement spreads rapidly throughout the world, with very beneficial results for people and the environment. The originator of the movement, Claire, is awarded the Order of Canada for her innovation.This book will be appealing to thinking adults who care about the environment and about their children's future and their own future, not only in this life, but also in subsequent ones. It will be of special interest to spiritual people who have grown beyond conventional religion and who are open to a broad view of reality.

Humanity is ready for a fundamental transformation to a compassionate form of caring for each other and for the world. For example, see the books Pay It Forward and In Praise of Slowness, and also the "Slow Cities" movement that started in Italy. This book provides a model and inspiration for a grass-roots movement for such a fundamental transformation.

About the Author:

William Bezanson, P.Eng, is an engineer who advises organizations on how to design products and services to be user-centered. He has published a professional book on that subject, Performance Support Solutions: Achieving Business Goals Through Enabling User Performance, Victoria BC: Trafford Publishing, 2002. One of his interests is in leaving the world better than he found it, and his book Why Are Gas Prices So High? is intended to further that interest. He is writing a second novel, on the same subject as his Performance Support book, but conveying the same information in a light-hearted, fictional form. He grew up in Nova Scotia, was educated in Halifax, and now lives with his wife and family in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
