The title of this book is a clear reference to the axiom that in order to have world peace, one must first work towards inner peace.  As a means to help with that journey, Fishel offers a series of meditations drawing from such diverse sources as Mother Teresa, Pema Chodron, Ghandi, John Lennon, as well as her own pep talk/reminder to help keep our minds on the task at hand: greater inner calm as a means to change our world.  Each day of the year has its own devotional meditation, making this a book to take off your shelf or bookstand at the beginning of each day to offer a source of reflection and inspiration.  From Sterling Publishing and available at from your local, independent bookstore.
