Tales of People Who Get It is based on the ideas, actions and beliefs that were uncovered in interviews of 34 highly successful individuals from Canada, the United States, Sweden, Switzerland, Jamaica and South Africa. The responses to the interviews form each individual story. And the effect is startling: when you've finished reading the stories, you get the sense that every thing is connected - that we're all connected. There is also a sense of comfort in knowing that any of the stories could be your story because while these are successful people who "get it" they are also ordinary people with the same challenges and struggles we all face. It's a chance to learn from the way they resolve these struggles and apply the lessons when those same challenges arise in your life.
