Stopping to smell the roses has taken a back seat for typical on-the-go students, moms, executives, entrepreneurs and the like. In short, societal norms dictate that our days consist of multitasking gymnastics – hardly the setting to foster reflection of any kind. John H.T. Francis, author of Reflections on Fundamental Matters: Not for the Satisfied Mind challenges his readers to do more than simply taking a break from their fast-paced lives. He wants them to think … truly think about what matters and he provides a stimulating starting point for these discussions in his book.
“Throughout my life, I’ve had a keen interest in asking important questions and looking for answers,” explains John. “While I’ve always had a great desire for knowledge, I could hardly ignore the disparity in the evolution of knowledge versus the way our society stands complacent. This book sets to bridge this gap and serves as an introduction to discovering new and perhaps different perspectives.”by
