Pressestimmen"Anything Amy Kass puts her mind to will be valuable to those of us who have learned so much from her previous work in civic reflection and philanthropy. I find her style provocative and challenging, but her work is always solid and well-grounded." Paul Pribbenow, President, Rockford College "I have been impressed with the work of Amy Kass. The Perfect Gift, her earlier anthology, is a marvelous and stimulating resource for dialogue and conversation. I find this new resource exciting and useful." William G.
