Ahmad Daniels, M.Ed., has spent a lifetime in service as an educator, activist and spiritual beacon for people of color. As a civic leader, inspirational speaker and influential author and seminar leader he has changed lives for a long time. And with this book, he expands the horizon from narrower, racially-based needs to more universal, socially and culturally inclusive possibilities. Through short, easy-to-read homilies, coupled with penetrating questions and insightful exercises, he opens the door to enhanced self-realization in all people, everywhere. Although finding their origina voice in the African-American community, Daniels'"40 Clues to Self-Actualization" span the horizons of personal and cultural experience from the most basic of survival needs to the most esoteric states of self-actualization, reminding us that all of it is available to us – if only we are willing to reach for it, honest enough to realize that we are the main obstacle between our current selves and our best selves, and open enough to recognize it and accept it in others, realizing that we, too, deserve to become the best we can be.
