A Field Guide to Good Decisions: Values in Action (Praeger, March 2006)

My colleague Mark Bennett (a mediator and business consultant from Santa Fe) and I have just published this book, and are beginning our book tour. We've had signings in Albuquerque (Page One), Santa Fe (Garcia Street Books), and Los Alamos (Otowi Station). We're "going national" over the next months, and would love to make ourselves available to any book club interested in our work
