Contributions from 101 of the most prestigious thinkers, writers, public figures, and other luminaries on a wide range of topics fill the pages of this meditation on how to make the world a better place. Focusing on the large problems of the world as well as the little challenges people face, How to Achieve a Heaven on Earth tackles the momentous question of what each of us can do to improve our community, our country, and our world, one step at a time.
About The Author:
John E. Wade II is an author, investor, philanthropist, and founder of the nonprofit organization Soldiers of Love. An active member of his church and civic organizations in his area, Wade holds an M.A. from the University of Georgia and has worked in a range of fields. His extensive travels, including visits to China, India, Egypt, Israel, Syria, Jordan, and Brazil, inspired him to collect the essays in this work. Wade lives in New Orleans, Louisiana.
This was a wonderful compilation of many well known people, such as Barack Obama, George Bush, Al Gore and Ted Turner. Social issues of all kinds are discussed in such a way that the I could use the information to formulate my own opinions on the issues, and how best to make a difference in my little corner of the world! While I did not agree with all positions made, this was a wonderful read. Instead of reading right through, I broke it up over a week, which is not hard to do with essay style writing. If you are interested in social issues, and how you can make an impact in today's world, this is the book for you! I highly recommend it! If you check out the How To Acheive website, you will also find some great resources.
