Synopsis

What is strength? This book ponders various facets of strength in a philosophical dialogue that probes the meaning of character and values, what is worth fighting for--and why; what it means to be a true friend; how to know when it's right to stand up to others; what it means to be strong; and how to gain strength in our convictions-in sum, what it means to be strong, and how to find and train our own inner strength. Is real strength as obvious as it seems? Does it require more strength to act, or to hold yourself from acting? Why do you need it? Where does truth come into play, and how do we know truth when we see it? How do heart, soul and mind figure into things, and where do our gut feelings come from? Can you be strong when you are at odds with yourself? In this Dialogue, Father and Director coach Youth who has just been bloodied by a bully. Having stood for what he felt was right, it was a technical win but left Youth questioning himself. He can build physical strength readily enough, but it's not merely physical strength he needs. His journey is about finding the right kind of confidence, the right kind of strength - a trickier business, but all the more worthwhile.
