The Arkansas Gazette, under the independent local ownership of the Heiskell/Patterson family, was one of the most honored newspapers of twentieth-century American journalism, winning two Pulitzer Prizes for its coverage of the Little Rock Central Crisis. But wounds from a fierce newspaper war against another local owner—Walter Hussman and his Arkansas Democrat—combined with changing economic realities, led to the family’s decision to sell to the Gannett Corporation in 1986. Whereas the Heiskell/Patterson family had been committed to quality journalism, Gannett was focused on the bottom line. The corporation shifted the Gazette’s editorial focus from giving readers what they needed to be engaged citizens to informing them about what they should do in their leisure time. While in many ways the chain trivialized the Gazette’s mission, the paper managed to retain its superior quality. But financial concerns made the difference in Arkansas’s ongoing newspaper war. As the head of a privately held company, Hussman had only himself to answer to, and he never flinched while spending $42 million in his battle with the Pattersons and millions more against Gannett. Gannett ultimately lost $108 million during its five years in Little Rock; Hussman said his losses were far less but still in the tens of millions. Gannett had to answer to nervous stockholders, most of whom had no tie to, or knowledge of, Arkansas or the Gazette. For Hussman, the Arkansan, the battle had been personal since at least 1978. It is no surprise that the corporation blinked first, and the Arkansas Gazette died on October 18, 1991, the victim of corporate journalism.

Every so often, an idea is born that changes forever the way we view things. This book describes not just one such idea, but three of them. Our society's acceptance of the way our Federal Government operates is thoroughly challenged. Search as you might in any venue, bookstore, library, a friend's den or on the Internet, you won't find another book that will provoke your thinking or energize your politics the way this one will. And all within the purview of our remarkable Constitution. Democrat or Republican, Left or Right, you will never again be complacent about Taxation, Entitlements or Health Care. And you'll enjoy the complete dissection of the comparative mindsets of Liberals and Conservatives. The last Chapter is a surprise; you'll love it!

"The only thing that is constant is change," the Greek philosopher Heraclitus once said. Change is not only essential; it is inevitable. It will happen, whether we like it or not. While change is what happens around us, Dr. Chris Bowen writes, transition is what happens in us as we respond to that change. Writing with transparency and insight, Dr. Bowen tells the story of his own transition from a successful pastor to a sought-after entrepreneur and transitional leader. Throughout, he weaves principles he learned--sometimes the hard way--as he sought to reconcile the stirrings he was feeling in his heart with the success and fulfillment he was experiencing in his career and ministry. Ultimately, his journey led him to find and prepare a successor, put in place an exit plan and take a leap of faith that would launch him into his destiny and change his life forever. Dr. Bowen challenges readers to evaluate their lives and take big risks, but he also provides them with a practical roadmap for achieving their dreams as they pursue their deepest passions.
