Through an intriguing story of parents struggling with their troubled children and with their own personal problems, The Anatomy of Peace shows how to get past the preconceived ideas and self-justifying reactions that keep us from seeing the world clearly and dealing with it effectively.

Yusuf al-Falah, an Arab, and Avi Rozen, a Jew, each lost his father at the hands of the other's ethnic cousins. As the story unfolds, we discover how they came together, how they help warring parents and children to come together, and how we too can find our way out of the struggles that weigh us down.

The choice between peace and war lies within us. As one of the characters says, A solution to the inner war solves the outer war as well. This book offers more than hope - it shows how we can prevent the conflicts that cause so much pain in our lives and in the world. Download and start listening now!

    " I feel a bit odd giving it a 3 when everyone else seems to adore this book. It was...realtively enjoyable, I learned some things, but I feel like I kinda already have a peaceful life sans strife, so I didn;t feel the need to voraciously absorb everything I could. Probably helpful for people who don't think much, and would like someone else to think for them. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 2/4/2014

    " This book speaks of truths we know and may have learned but organizes it in a way we can apply it to ourselves and our relationships with others at home; souse, children or at the work place, and community, essentially anyone. I would recommend it to everyone. I don't think there is a person that would not benefit form this book in there relationships. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rozalyn | 2/2/2014

    " Yet another book club book that I just read. It's basically a secular look at pride and I have to say that I enjoyed the secular perspective and the deconstruction. I learned a couple things and it definitely gave me somethings to think about. I was intrigued by the backdrop of the Israeli/Arab conflict and the story of Saladin at the beginning. I skipped most of the tables and graphs. "

    " easy read, but the best appraoch to parenting i have ever found "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 1/11/2014

    " Finally a self-help book that reads like a novel. Simple common sense approach to why we act like we act. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 1/6/2014

    " I could definately relate when my heart was at war but I couldn't really place myself in a box or really understand how to get out from their perspective. for me when my "heart is at war" sometimes I just need a good nights sleep or a piece of chocolate and quiet time. anway I liked the book itself and writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 12/28/2013

    " I do not enjoy self-help books so I was not looking forward to reading this book. I actually really enjoyed the book. It is written in a story format. I did tire of the endless lists of important points. But I learned things that I have already applied to my life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ander Heaton | 12/15/2013

    " This is one of the most fascinating books I've ever read. It delves so deeply into the nature of how our choices in relation to others affect the way we view them, the rest of the world, and ourselves. It helps one to identify the way in which wrong choices causes us to need to justify our actions, which then changes our perceptions. It deals with resolving conflict, and how to affect changes in others the right way. I love it, and will read it again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daryoung | 12/11/2013

    " This might have been a good book if it had been non-fiction. Horrible attempt at plot and character to thinly disguise an instructional book. I love the institution that produced this and their philosophies. Lousy book, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea | 11/16/2013

    " The first time I read this book I think I was not in the right place to receive it. I really enjoyed it this time and learned a lot about human behavior. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandi | 11/14/2013

    " I had to read this book for work and I ended up learning alot about communication and seeing people differently. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joyce | 10/30/2013

    " This is one of those "easy to read" books that need to be read more than once so the principles can sink in. Everyone should read it...it has the power to really change your life and bring you peace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon | 8/28/2013

    " Really opened my eyes to whats going on in our hearts. Loved it... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynette | 8/28/2013

    " life changing! If everyone would just change their hearts to have a heart at peace, it would be a different world. This is one I want to re-read until it becomes natural to deal with people in a positive peaceful manner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 7/28/2013

    " The ideas and concepts presented in this book are great for understanding conflict and how to resolve it in any situation. Not written in the clearest form, is is still very useful and vital for everyone to understand. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie Steed | 7/21/2013

    " Enjoyed this book,made me think more about my children & how to be a better mom to them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roxie | 5/9/2013

    " This is a great read. It is built on the same "theory" as Leadership and Self Deception. I think I enjoyed this one better just because of the characters and situation. It also had some added info at the end that was really good. But, I won't spoil that for those of you who haven't read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wayne | 5/16/2012

    " First of all I liked this book. It gave me a lot to think about and leaves me with more questions than it answered, this must be a sign of a good book. I do recommend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 2/22/2012

    " From the authors of leadership and self-deception, and excellent book about a heart at peace rather than a heart at war. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nanette Pratt | 1/19/2012

    " It did make me stop and think. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phil | 10/19/2011

    " This is an excellent book. If you have not read it, I highly recommend it. I think that it is necessary to provide a good context as to why our attitude and way of being makes a difference in how our lives go and the response that people have toward us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 8/12/2011

    " Really insightful. My new mantra is: "She's a person. She's a person. She's a person. She's not trying to be annoying; take a deep breath and help improve the situation. She's a person." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris | 5/15/2011

    " This quotes sums this book up in my opinion. "Peace- whether at home, work or between peoples- is invited only when an intelligent outward strategy is married to a peaceful inward one." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liza | 5/11/2011
