Philosophies of life and humanity, written by an Australian who has spent decades advising leaders on strategy in many capitals of the world.
On Preferring Life is a unique mix of literature and verse, partly autobiographical, by someone whose life has been an endless adventure into the beauty and poignancy of many of the world's turbulent and often less-navigated areas, especially the human mind.
