"War does not determine who is right - only who is left"
'Evolving the Spirit - From Democracy to Peace'
"I hope that our people, who are struggling for democracy in Burma,
will be able to learn much from your book.
I hope that you will be able to help us in our struggle,
for we are not yet at the end of the road"
"Evolving the Spirit is a serious and thoughtful work about conflict,
leadership and the importance of forgiveness
and it deserves and I hope reaches, a wide audience"

"I don't have a faith but your book has changed my life"
(Conservationist & g-g-grandson of Charles Darwin)
"A challenge to the way most people in the world think and act,
this book sets out personal precepts for a life well lived
and a world that is gentler, kinder and more just."
(Human rights activist)
"I welcome this book. It is a fine exploration of a dimension that is all too frequently overlooked in the Western world; that of the human spirit. This timely book gives voice to the growing awareness today that to create a deeper democracy and a more peaceful world, matters of heart and spirit must take centre stage, both in private and public spheres. It is my hope that it will stimulate a wider debate and foster positive change."
(Founder of 'Spirit of Peace')
"As I read your book, I am struck with your depth and scholarship. It is a long time since I have come across such a profound work."
(Co-founder of the Muslim Council of Britain, Vice-Chairman of East London Mosques)
"In this gem of a guide, Russell encourages us to know that we are not alone on our journey.
I commend it to all that seek personal development and are part of the emerging global community, determined to build a better world."
(Founder & president of 'Rights and Humanity')
"Good luck with your important work. All power to you!"
(Former British diplomat & high-profile critic of government policy at the Butler Review)
