Joe: Good afternoon Calliope.
Calliope: Good afternoon Joe. Congratulations on the release of your new book, From Violence to Peace.
Joe: Thanks. It has been a long time coming. I started working on it about a year and a half ago.
Calliope: What prompted you to write it?
Joe: The world including our country was becoming gradually more violent back then. The pace has only quickened since then.
Calliope: What’s the book about?
Joe: As you might guess, it’s about violence. I wondered about why people were so violent, how they got that way, what it means to be peaceful rather than violent and how we get there. The book is about all these questions. It’s about the process of moving from a world of violence to one of peace starting with yourself.
Calliope: Sounds timely. So now what?
Joe: I have been working on a companion book to Release Your Stress and Reclaim Your Life and From Violence to Peace. It is called Transform Your Anger and Find Peace.
Calliope: Can’t wait to see it.
Joe: You won’t have to wait long. It will be released soon. Talk with you later.
