Debra Engle answered Lisa Glase's question:
I won a Good Reads Giveaway for your book "Twenty", but have not received it yet and it's been over a month since I won. Do we receive the books after the release date - which is listed as January 28th for this book? Just wondering. Thank you. Lisa Glase
Hi, Lisa, thanks so much for letting me know. The books were sent out after the giveaway, so there must have been a glitch somewhere. I'll let my publisher know and make sure a copy is sent to you right away.
Thanks again. Hope you enjoy Twenty!

“Honest concern for others is the key factor in improving our day-to-day lives. When you are warm-hearted, there is no room for anger, jealousy, or insecurity. A calm mind and self-confidence are the basis for happy and peaceful relations with each other. Healthy, happy families and a healthy, peaceful nation are dependent on warm-heartedness. Some scientists have observed that constant anger and fear eat away at our immune system, whereas a calm mind strengthens it. We have to see how we can fundamentally change our education system so that we can train people to develop warm-heartedness early on in order to create a healthier society. I don't mean we need to change the whole system—just improve it. We need to encourage an understanding that inner peace comes from relying on human values like love, compassion, tolerance, and honesty, and that peace in the world relies on individuals finding inner peace. —HIS HOLINESS, THE DALAI LAMA”
