The Modern Thinker 296

Vancouver visionary and social activist launches his new book, The Modern Thinker

The world is changing every day; what is your part in making a difference?Everyday, around the globe, events are unfolding that have a direct or indirect impact on one’s life. Social worker and human rights activist Alex Sangha covers thought-inspiring subjects that range from compassionate capitalism and government debt, to Canadian immigration policies, Quebec secession, and an aboriginal parliament, not to mention a refreshing take on spirituality, in his new book, The Modern Thinker: Timeless Ideas, Inspiration, and Hope for the 21st Century.

Says Alex of his book, “We who are lucky to have been born or raised in Canada face a fraction of the economic, political, social, moral, religious, and sexual issues that affect others around the world. Yet there is a synergy between all things past and present and our actions today will define our lives tomorrow.”

The Modern Thinker is peppered with relevant, real-life stories and anecdotes, and is written in an easy to read style that appeals to everyone, from the hard-core activist to the layperson on the street. It is crafted in a textbook format with resources, discussion chapters, and space to jot down notes.  A follow-up book consisting of readers ideas, beliefs, and values is in the planning stages.

The Modern Thinker is divided into five chapters –  Economic Transformation, Political Action, Social Affairs, Environmental Impact, and Spiritual Awakening.  Each chapter has seven (7) short essays that will get you to think critically about the world around you.  The Modern Thinker is a one-of-a-kind contemporary social discussion guide suitable for younger and older readers alike.
Says Jenny Uechi, Managing Editor of the Vancouver Observer, “Alex Sangha has an impressively broad range of knowledge on issues that affect the world, and challenges problems that most people have come to accept. Sangha doesn’t just point out the troubles in this world, but thinks of bold solutions for them.”

The Modern Thinker is available everywhere through and at discounted rates through the publisher
