This book is a fabulous read. It taught me that peace is possible, and the steps to create peace in business, and all areas of conflict.
The author, Douglas Noll has taken principles of peace and applied it to our policies, how our diplomats rate in conflict resolution, and what needs to be done to find sustainable solutions to create peace in areas of conflict.
