A Guide to Practicing Truth

ByMatthew Hinsley

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
“A valuable, transformative prescription for a life of greater truth. Hinsley crafts a meticulously researched argument that will keep readers engaged and inspired…the author shows that readers can choose to master their awareness, consume content that uplifts them, and uncover motivations that ignite their sense of purpose. Moreover, this emotional evolution comes not at the expense of success but through creating it—resulting in joy for both readers and their communities.” - KIRKUS Reviews Form & Essence is about the undeniable power of invisible and hard-to-measure things in a world obsessed with data and demonstration. What we see on our screens often eclipses what we know in our hearts, when it is in our hearts that we find purpose and love. The labels we put on each other can keep us from building deep relationships, when it is through relationships that agreements are made and change happens. The metrics we use to claim progress in school or work can leave little room for earnest commitment to joy, when it is joy that fuels passion and creativity. There is a deeper Truth. A balance between the exterior and the interior that can reconnect us with passion, overcome division, and reveal true purpose. Form & Essence unpacks the code that causes us to value what is visible over what is vital, and teaches the reader to identify and practice deeper Truth. Form & Essence includes exclusive interviews with a wide range of incredible people from the current President of the Board of the Ford Foundation Dr. Francisco Cigarroa, to a founder of National Instruments Jeff Kodosky, Alamo Drafthouse Founder Tim League, Palliative Care Physician at a major research institution Laura Morrison, Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist and entrepreneur SaulPaul, major philanthropists like Morton Meyerson, one of the greatest classical guitarists of all time Pepe Romero, and many others.
