Decades ago, Einstein said “You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war.” Paul Chappell, former army captain and author of 7 books including The Art of Waging Peace, takes Einstein’s thinking to a new level explaining the investment, strategizing and planning that a peaceful world would demand. His is not some pie in the sky dream but rather a thoughtful and compelling argument that war is not our destiny. Don’t miss this provocative conversation about how you can impact a peaceful future.
Paul K. Chappell graduated from West Point in 2002, was deployed to Iraq, and left active duty in November 2009 as a Captain. He is the author of the Road to Peace series, a seven-book series about waging peace, ending war, the art of living, and what it means to be human. The first four published books in this series are Will War Ever End?, The End of War, Peaceful Revolution, and The Art of Waging Peace. Chappell serves as the Peace Leadership Director for the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. Lecturing across the country and internationally, he also teaches college courses and workshops on Peace Leadership.
