“Evokes rather than prescribes, fostering the kind of mindset that makes it easy for readers to sense, at a cellular level, whatever they need to understand in order to live their lives to the fullest.”

“Without a strong inner foundation many people struggle to keep the learning process going in their adult lives and stop evolving. When that happens they lose the capacity to absorb new information and become better at what they do…. Splitting the Arrow very artistically and succinctly guides the reader on a path towards building and strengthening that inner foundation.”

“This is a most important and timely book for each individual, organization, and indeed for humanity itself.”
