Yes, it’s true. The book we’ve all been waiting for is finally available across North America — as well as in Europe, Singapore, and Australia. Pick it up at your favourite bookseller, or order it online (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, and Indigo).
We invite you to help us spread the word about this emerging and world-changing movement! Here are some suggestions:
• Send an email about the book to someone who might be a New Radical-in-the-making.
• Give a colleague, friend, or family member a copy. It might inspire them to change their life, too!
• Buy the book for someone who may not be able to afford it — but who is searching just like you.
• Ask your local library to add it to their collection.
• Tell someone in the media about this movement.
• Whenever you see the book on the shelf of a bookstore, turn it face out!
• Invite me to speak at your next event. I’m represented by www.speakersspotlight.com.
• Share your story. Tell others what you’ve been thinking about, dreaming about, and longing for. Change begins when we begin to share what’s going on inside!
2008 is the year of the New Radical. Hope is in the air!

What really got him hooked was when he started talking to people in medical research and realized that the current system wasn’t working (if your eyebrows shoot up at this, read on).
