subtitle: Exploring the Feelings Behind Worldviews

Quick Links:      Table of Contents          List of Songs          How to Order  

important note: this book is now available bundled with The Worldview Literacy Book
as part of the new Worldview Literacy and Emotional Intelligence course. 

summary of book: While it promotes understanding of what goes on in your brain as you build the conceptual framework behind your worldview, what this book really has to say concerns feelings. So at its heart are eighty-one songs based on popular favorites—one for each of the eighty-one Project Worldview worldview themes. Using song lyrics and text, the book tells a personal tale—in a way it's a love story—one that has a wildly improbable, worldview shaking, musically inspired climax!

excerpt from review: "...offbeat and intriguing...unfailingly earnest...thought-provoking...An inventive, perspective-broadening approach to examining different life philosophies." (click here to read complete review from Kirkus Reviews)
