The author was a Navy fighter pilot, sailor, skier, and executive who built and administered hospitals. For the last twenty years, his concerns have been about human relationships and how the importance given to the individual has superseded the importance of relationships, with self-love trumping our love of others. This resulted in many years of thought and a decade of researching and writing this book. To find the way of love is to explore and reexamine the purpose of our existence.
Michael Powell (1905-90) was one of Britain's foremost directors and a three-time Academy Award nominee for The Red Shoes, 49th Parallel, and One of Our Aircraft Is Missing.
