About the Book

From his farmhouse porch Granddad tells stories to his multi-age grandchildren to help them define a better humanity.

Dreamers like Elon Musk had already inspired Granddad’s grandchildren to believe in a great technological future. While Granddad welcomed and celebrated the tremendous potential of our science and technology, he wanted his grandchildren to see the potential of living by a picture of themselves reaching for a better humanity, empowered by a partnership of science, technology and a knowledge-based faith informed by the Big Ten Humanitarian Qualities.

Such a story-based paradigm is so overarching it adds an important complement to all religions, politics, and cultures, and so inclusive for our global age it can be taught in all the learning centers of the world, so any boy and girl can proudly say, “I have been taught the Big Ten Humanitarian Qualities as the, ABC’s of successful living wherever I live in the world family!”

The Reach is a symphony of stories in the arena of success and personal development, neuro science, positive psychology, and inspiration from the dynamic uplift of feedback from qualities-based living. Because of the plasticity of the brain to reset itself so it guides our story by a picture of ourselves reaching for our best self and a better humanity, we can dream big and live on the reach side of immense possibilities!

About the Author

Don C. Davis grew up in the country on a farm. Good parents! Good church. Off to college at age seventeen, with eighty-seven dollars in his pocket.

The first thing Don did was go to the city to get a part-time job so he could work his way through college. How unlikely could it be that, when he came back from the city and walked down across the campus, there she was, Mary, self-assured and composed, who would become the love of his life, esteemed professional musician, and the mother of their twin sons Charles and Nolan, with Ph.D.s in physics and careers in physics and now in leading edge research? Unlikely? It happened!

With three degrees, Th.B., B.A., M.Div., Don followed a forty-year career as a United Methodist minister, a second career as a sales associate in men's clothing, and then the years up to now as a speaker, philosopher, and writer of ten books, with the titles of: "Granddad's Farmhouse Porch Stories," "New Tomorrows," "Apple Blossom Time," "The Future We Ask For," "A Place in the Story," "Eagles View Mountain," "Sunrise Dreams," "The New Sacred," "Profiles in a Dream Big Enough," and now, "The Reach."

Don's big long-reach dream is that the recurring "Big Ten Humanitarian Qualities" will be chosen by the world family as identity markers in the reach for our best self and future, and taught in all the learning centers of the world so no boy and girl will ever have to say, "I never was taught the Big Ten Humanitarian Qualities as the ABC's of successful living."
