"I see what people mean when they say this is a must-read book. Do you really want to change your life for the better? We all would answer yes to that, but more than likely have always thought . . . but how? Dr. Parker extends her welcoming hand with genuine warmth and compassion and guides you through simple but profound steps to become your own 'inner activist' and 'best friend forever.' Blending ancient wisdom with modern-day principles, this book will help you make the good, strong, mindful decisions to create a meaningful, purposeful life."
