From the book’s introduction: An Amazon shaman once
told me, “Touching the jaguar means that you can identify
your fears and barriers, confront them, alter your perceptions
about them, accept their energy, and take actions to change
yourself and the world.”
John Perkins is a New York Times bestselling author who has
the courage and conviction to share the evil he helped to
perpetrate on indigenous people and developing companies when
he was an economic hitman.
Now he shares the story of his return to the Amazon and his
inspiration to become an advocate to transform the death economy
into a life economy.
When I was provided with the opportunity to read a review
copy of this book, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect,
but it did sound interesting.
Once I sat down to read, I quickly discovered that it was
much more than interesting. I was captivated. I was so engaged
that I was compelled to keep turning page after page, sometimes
with my heart in my throat and other times with a lump in
my throat and tears in my eyes.
While I’ve always known that greed and corruption run
rampant in the world, I found it eye-opening when faced with
just how bad it is. John Perkins presents alternatives and
options to repair the damage done in this world, and that
provides hope for the future. If ever we needed hope for the
future, this is the time.
Please buy this book. Please read it cover-to-cover and then
share what you have learned with others. While I sincerely
hope that my review helps to promote how important it is,
each of you who read it can make a huge impact by telling
others about John Perkins and his amazing life stories.
