Hello all.

I'm Jack Hawley, one of the old (literally and
figuratively), first OSers from away back to UNH
days--and I'm brand new to OSLIST, and enjoying it.

I'm also sorta new to the Internet (Old friend
Harrison Owen came over to our house in S. California
a million years ago to log me onto the Net, but I
guess it didn't take.) Therefore, if I make any gaffs,
please forgive them and chalk it up to rookie-ism.

I know many of you personally, and have gotten good
feedback from many of you regarding my first book:
"Reawakening The Spirit In Work" (which I recently
learned has become a "bestseller").

My new book "The Bhagavad Gita: A Walkthrough For
Westerners" was just released. It's not an OS or OT
book except in the cosmic sense, but it is a very
straightforward, clear, high, spiritual book published
by New World Library, Novato, Calif.

Quoting from the pulisher's press release:

"A Simple, Clear and Enjoyable Walk Through a Classic
Scripture from India.

"...[the author] 'walks us through' this classic
scripture ... a translation in moving prose that reads
as smoothly as a child's adventure tale."

"The Bhagavad Gita is an epic mystical poem about
life, death, love, and duty...To read it is to reach
countless epochs back in time--yet, as Jack settled
into these cobwebby teachings they felt strangely
close and familiar."

"...not theology or religion--it's a universal love
song, sung by God to His friend man [humanity]. It
can't be confined  by any creed. It's a statement of
the truths at the core of what we all already believe,
only clearer, so those truths become immediately
useful in our daily lives."

For those of you who don't know me: The author's Bio
in the press release describes me thusly: "... a
management consultant, writer. President of JAH
Associates, consultants in organizational respiriting.
He, and his (now fully recuperated) wife Louise, spend
six months each year studying and lecturing in an
ashram in rural southern India. Hawley is an
independent writer and speaker unaffiliated with any
organization, ashram, or guru. His primary objectives
are to stimulate new thought and behavior in the world
and bring practical and accessible new ideas to
individuals and organizations. [etc., etc., etc.]

If you want to read more about the book go to the
publisher's web site: ---or,
perhaps a bit cheaper, or Amazon,
Borders, etc.

OD, OT, and now OS people are very close to my heart.
I never miss the opportunity to tell people how
important this "movement" (mostly in the
business/organization world) is for our whole world!

I am looking for ideas about how to help the
publishers launch this new book. If you know any
reviewers or media that could help get word of it out
to many people, please let me know. Any and all ideas
will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for listening. I look forward to meeting some
of you at OT-19 in July.
