About the Book

We live in unique times, just as each individual is unique. In North America, the capitalist system plus democracy have given us unprecedented prosperity and cherished individual freedoms. However, we also face huge social inequalities and there seems to be an erosion of the general guidelines that secure and provide the cultural signposts as we go about our busy lives. Peek into the private world of an average uncle and his average nephew, as they explore these issues in their own lives. You might find something in there for yourself.

About the Author

Richard Penner is seventy-one years old; he was born in Canada but moved to California soon after university graduation, where he was involved in international agriculture.

He recently returned to Canada for retirement. This book is a letter to his nephew, Rob, with whom he has a close relationship. Rob is an attorney in Vancouver, and Rich lives in Calgary. The book/letter is a summary of ideas communicated during numerous conversations they have had about important issues in their lives. Rob has shown this letter to some of his friends, and they strongly suggested that Rich figure out a way to share this with a greater audience.
