Dr. Stearn interviewed notable sages such as: Steve Allen, Dave Brubeck, Melvin Belli, Alice Faye, John Gardner, Gerald Jampolsky, Bella Lewitzky, Rollo May, Robert Mondavi, Linus Pauling, Charles M. Schulz, John Wooden & many others, about: creativity, work, upbringing, mentors, fulfillment, longevity, & faith. These individuals for the most part had parents who recognized & supported their interests at an early age. When they became adults they had years of confidence in their own instincts, which served them well when they made adult decisions as to the kind of life they were going to lead. Additionally, it appears that most of the respondents' work was not modeled as an activity to be completed solely as a matter of necessity, but respected for what it could provide the individual emotionally. Simply put, their parents not only loved, respected & supported them, they held them accountable for their behavior & encouraged qualitative decision making; while demonstrating the relationship between the power of choices & the ability to extract all that life had to offer.
