This is a Hero's Journey about a dentist whose life goes from hopelessness and despair to growth and prosperity with the help of his philosopher mentor. Follow along in this journey as Tom, the young protagonist, learns new ways to view his world from Henry who is a dental philosopher. Tom is motivated to determine what he really wants out of life. He also seeks to view new approaches, practice new positive attitudes, and commit to a higher purpose. On his journey, he masters behavioral skills that fuel a passion for his work and lasting happiness in his life. Ultimately, Tom gives back to other young dentists by guiding them like his mentor Henry guided him. Many of the lessons Tom learns and implements in his life are based on the perennial philosophy of the Stoics and today's field of Positive Psychology.
