Note From The Publisher of SFI Books

"Today, I believe people are ailing. Contemporary culture is plagued by the passion to possess: "more is better" is the prevailing philosophy. We are constantly being told what to do and how to think; the market place is crowded with things to buy and things to do; opinions about what to buy, what to do and why; images of how to look and how to be. The complexity of rushing to achieve and accumulate more and more overwhelms us. The result: we are less collected, more reactive, true happiness and peace of mind elude us.

Why, then, am I choosing to enter an already overcrowded and over-communicated market place?

Because I also believe it is our urgent duty to rouse ourselves to fresh reflection about what is worthwhile and what is not. But now, these reflections must be grounded in better critical-thinking capacities. I would like to see people awaken and become more conscious and better equipped to navigate this crowded field of moving targets and make better choices in building real prosperity. Real prosperity, for me, means wholeness; prosperous lives are lives that are not only financially secure but peaceful and serene as well. So I have embarked upon the task of making critical reflection fashionable."
