Written by Gil Druckman, toy and game inventor, university professor, and spiritual mentor, the stories he shares of overcoming past trauma through embracing his inner truth are very though provoking and will certainly provide a new perspective on the way that you approach obstacles in your life.


The book is told as a story of Gil’s journey and can be used as a guide to transform your own life. He shares the incredible transformative experience of embracing his inner truth and deciding to live without masks, shame, doubt, or fear, allowing him to unlock his potential that was previously hidden.
