How Today's Obsession with
Control, Ownership, & Independence
is Destroying the Quality of Our Lives
Control, Ownership and Independence... these are time-honored and highly desirable concepts, right?
Wrong! According to New York Times #1 best selling author, Richard Eyre.
He sees Control, Ownership, & Independence as The Three Deceivers. Why?
Because not only are they unobtainable, they are actually undesirable! Having more control, more ownership,
and more independence are the wrong goals, says Eyre. Their elusive pursuit draws us away from God and
diminishes our relationships with other people.
At a time of huge uncertainty in our world, Eyre attests that his new book strikes at the very heart of the three
chief contributors to unhappiness and frustration in our lives. Glenn Beck agrees. Richard
not only exposes and debunks The Three Deceivers but more importantly he introduces
the reader to The Three Alternatives --- (which comprises the second half of the book)
those goals and attitudes that will lead us
to happier, more spiritually satisfying and stress free lives.
The book is written in a clever and interesting way so that it is really two books in one. The two books can be
read from either side, but says Eyre, readers must start with The Three Deceivers
before reading The Three Alternatives in order to extract the maximum effect that the
author has prepared in adopting this unique writing style.
“I found the section on serendipity just absolutely mind-boggling. I had never heard this before.
I just think it is one of the best things that I have read and it is so incredibly true.”
