About the Book

“Alex is clearly a world citizen who disseminates on a wide variety of issues with amazing clarity.  His refreshing views on a wide range of subjects are written with elegance and a light touch that does not cloud the issues.”  
Veeno Dewan, Editor, Voice Newspaper
“Alex Sangha has an impressively broad range of knowledge on issues that affect the world, and challenges problems that most people have come to accept.  Sangha doesn’t just point out the troubles in this world, but thinks of bold solutions for them.”
Jenny Uechi, Managing Editor, Vancouver Observer
If you could adopt a single step and make a small difference, what would it be?
What if you could cultivate multiple small steps that lead to a bigger, better, and brighter future?
In this one of a kind social discussion guide, Vancouver visionary Alex Sangha delivers straight-talk on socio-economic, environmental, political, and spiritual issues that anyone can put to use.  His mission?  Getting people to think for themselves.  His tools?  The hard hitting articles he pens which call it like he sees it.
This valuable volume is a collection of frank and insightful essays on the world in the 21st Century, through the eyes of a social activist immersed in it.
