The words chosen in “The ABC’s of Values” and their short, insightful evaluation,
can encourage contemplation on how to be a better person and live a better
life. The book does not pass judgment on the present or glorify the past, but tries
to evaluate actions and attitudes that can improve an individual and society.
Words abound in today’s society, on radio, television, telephone, on iPods and
are not necessarily significant. This book takes important or ordinary words
and explores their meaning and ways in which they can explain a difficulty, en-
courage action, or explore a positive component. Words have meaning, and what
they mean can help us lead a better life and be a better person.
Each word in the book is accompanied by a famous quotation. Each word is
aimed at encouraging the reader to enjoy a happy, successful, life of good humor,
good friends, good times, doing good things for yourself and those who share it
The ABC’s of Values makes it clear that goodness is not always present, but a
good attempt at recognizing difficulties and dealing with them makes it possible
to live and enjoy a good life.
