Yusuf al-Falah, an Arab, and Avi Rozen, a Jew, each lost his father at the hands of the other's ethnic cousins. As the story unfolds, we discover how they came together, how they help warring parents and children to come together, and how we too can find our way out of the struggles that weigh us down.
The choice between peace and war lies within us. As one of the characters says, "A solution to the inner war solves the outer war as well." This book offers more than hope - it shows how we can prevent the conflicts that cause so much pain in our lives and in the world.

I love the book and it's one that I read every once in a while so as to remember the teachings it has to offer
unpacking difficult ideas in very easy and understandable ways. It's great for anyone who works very closely with people, or for someone who just wants to grow a little wiser and more self-aware.
This book is life changing!!! It made me ponder a lot about ALL the relationship in my life and how I can change them! I didn't really realize how much I see people as objects and not people until now and I intend to change that aspect in my life! To really listen and care about each person I love and in my life. As well as strangers who just need a smile! Love that this is a story not just a person reading how to get set help in steps. THANK YOU for an amazing book to listen to over and over again!
This is possibly the most important book I've ever read. In desperate need of repairing a relationship with my adult son and in improving and evolving relationships at work, this is the first book that gives me hope.
While not a religious book per se, I listen to this every year or so to tune my heart to see people in my life the way God might see them. And every time I listen something new strikes me. Thanks Arbinger for this work. I have been and continue to be changed by it.
Yes!!! It helped me see my children, spouse, coworkers, strangers as people... in fact seeing someone as a person took on new meaning.
A refreshingly different approach to helping others find a heart of peace. As a listener, you become part of the story -- seeing parts of yourself in the various characters. This helps in recognizeing, identifying, and solving issues of conflict in your own life. I would highly recommend this book.
