"I have had the honor to hear John speak at a conference, using a summary of the material from this DVD to make his main points about The Five Secrets. This DVD captures his spirit and presence as if the viewer were in the front row, seeing him live. I have read the book, and I would still recommend the DVD over the book. The book is exellent as well, but for someone with a true gift for storytelling in person, it is difficult to bring that same level of personality to the page. The enhancements to the dvd: the interviews with some of the elders, the visual aids during the presentation, and the reactions of the audience, help to make the DVD experience an unforgettable one. What I like most about The Five Secrets is that it is a gift to us as a society which no longer has the presence of a council of elders, or in many cases the presence of an elder in the family. We can learn from the lives of those who have come before us, so that we can in turn have richer, more fulfilling lives RIGHT NOW!"
