And what they hear astounds them. The ideas are so simple. The wisdom so pure. And the concepts as familiar as they are obvious. Stephen Michael Peter Thomas is one of the rare thinkers who can make timeless half-truths sound refreshingly new.

Stephen Michael Peter Thomas's every word mints a new batch of buzz phrases destined to be bandied about everywhere.
