Splitting the Arrow – Understanding the Business of Life
AUTHOR Prem Rawat
FORMAT Portrait; 154mm x 197mm; Hardback
Prem Rawat is an international speaker and peace ambassador, closely involved with peace education and has been speaking on the subject for over 50 years. He is an accomplished pilot and art photographer, married with four children.
In the book Rawat uses his story telling skills, drawn from his travels around the world. The stories, of varying lengths, transcend culture and draw out simple meaning about the business of life: what success and prosperity really mean. This illustrated book, designed in Japan, has been nominated for a national award there. Book production and print quality is important to the publishers. It’s a tactile hardback with an engaging cover, made with the finest paper and ink.
The illustrator, Aya Shiroi, is very well known in her home country for her watercolour illustrations. Here she uses pen and ink line drawings to illustrate the author’s words.
In the second part of the book the editors show how Rawat’s stories apply in real life, as he responds to questions from his audiences. Whether it’s a mother, a healthcare professional, or a business leader.
The creative team present a book for calm reflection; to take around with you. Great to touch, hold and read, with a message that goes straight to the heart.
“In order to build harmonious relationships with others and a peaceful society we first need to be at peace with ourselves.” -Prem Rawat
