Invaluable Lessons from a Frog cover

“The power of Invaluable Lessons from a Frog lies in its timeliness as an alternative story or antidote to the quick-fix message which fills the airwaves and the bookshops and the cybernets of the world. I strongly recommend this book as important reading for reinventing our lives in the 21st century and for awakening to our possibilities, many of which have been cleverly disguised by the factors described by Olivier Clerc.”
