Table of Contents
by Allen Klein
“Oh good, we're having another adventure!” Sometimes children are the teachers.
Children have a remarkable talent for not treating the adult world with the kind of respect we are so confident it ought to be given. To the irritation of authority figures of all sorts, children expend considerable energy in “clowning around.” They refuse to appreciate the gravity of our monumental concerns, while we forget that if we were to become more like children, our concerns might not be so monumental.
This book is not a member benefit, but sample chapters have been selected for your perusal.
