Released in 2018 by Telling Stories Press, Secret Box has earned a 5* approval by Readers' Favorite and over 25 reviews at 4 and 5* on Amazon (in the UK, US and Canada) and Goodreads.
A psychologist takes off his professional hat and entices us into a '60s childhood in which a father craving happiness, freedom and excitement joins a "Human Potential Movement".
The reader, swept along in the shoes of a historian, detective, coach, psychologist and writer, becomes beautifully immersed in these lives and provoked to consider how we can stay honest while also remaining loyal to our partners and children.
Of interest to all of us who seek to understand ourselves and our families, this also raises practical questions for psychologists, sociologists, organisational leaders and those in a helping profession.
About the Author
Tony Page is a chartered psychologist specialising in organisational development. He coaches leaders and teams in business, government and NGOs in the UK and internationally. His latest book "Secret Box: Searching for Dad in a Century of Self" draws on a range of methods (coaching, facilitation, narrative, theatrical, developmental) learned during a career with senior executives to solve the personal mystery that has bugged the author throughout his life. They say it's a bit of a page-turner. Tony grew up in Kent, lives in South West London and has travelled widely for work and pleasure. He is married with grown-up children and recently turned sixty. He and his wife Helen spent time last year volunteering in Myanmar and Nepal for VSO. He is the author of two other critically acclaimed books: "Diary of a Change Agent" (1996, Gower) and "Creating Leadership: How to Change Hippos into Gazelles" (2018, BEP).
