Publisher's Summary

Through an intriguing story of parents struggling with their troubled children and with their own personal problems, The Anatomy of Peace shows how to get past the preconceived ideas and self-justifying reactions that keep us from seeing the world clearly and dealing with it effectively.

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.

    "Best book EVER!!!"

    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!

    "Possibly the most important book"

    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.

    "A profound work"

    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.

    "Recognizing, Identifying, and Solving Conflict"

    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.

    Story
    "AWESOME!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Anatomy of Peace to be better than the print version?

    I do not know, because I have only listened to the audio, but it is great. Changed my whole outlook. Made me see people in a whole new light and to understand so many things I did not. I found that when I am at peace my life goes much more smoothly and when I am not, it is very hard to understand where the other person is coming from and what they need. This is and exceptional book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Anatomy of Peace?

    When I realized I had a heart at war and how to have a heart at peace.


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    How to have a heart at peace and look at people as people and not as objects; and that when I have to make excuses for why I am treating someone badly, well, that is when I need to look at myself and see what is going on with me.


    Any additional comments?

    I will listen and re-listen to this book over and over again. Thank you,

    "Changed my thoughts with my family, my clients, et"

    I love that this is an audiobook, as I travel so much and reading takes me longer than others, I often buy books and don't get them read. A fellow therapist recommended this and I used a credit to buy it, I know this will change my life and the life of my clients moving forward, so grateful to the arbinger institute!
