Book: The Power of the Second Question: finding simple truths for complex lives

Each of us builds a collection of simple truths about our world, our relationships and our personal identity. These help us make sense of the business of being alive. But how often do we take the time to reflect and and consider the full depth and breadth of our personal wisdom?
In The Power of the Second Question, Chris invites you to lift up from the practicalities of everyday life to consider the bigger picture.

You will come to appreciate that life is perhaps more deeply enriching and fulfilling than you had ever realised before.
