‘Every paragraph in this book contains a thought-provoking phrase’
 
Ari Badaines on Yannis’ book
 
When I first heard about this book, I thought that the last thing I wanted to do was read some journalist's view of historical events mixed with his dreams and visions. I was sure it would be a long, sporadic read, struggling to stay focused. Instead, I quickly was drawn into a very personal, honest account of Greece's recent political history, and how it influenced and shaped Yannis Andricopoulos' life and dreams, leading eventually to the establishment of the Skyros Centre, initially a place for personal development and community living reflecting the values and aspirations described in his book.
 
What I found so attractive and compelling about this book was the clear, open, humorous, and reflective presentation of culture, history, politics, and Yannis's perspective on them and how they shaped and led to the current Greece that struggles today. He embellishes this with references to early Greek history, philosophy, and mythology and several humorous interpretations which keep the book 'alive' and interesting.
 
If you start this on a weekend don't make any other plans because you won't want to put it down; I had finished it by Sunday evening. Pretty good for a book on history. politics, and dreams!
