Maybe you were there. Or you might be one of the many that, young and old, can’t get enough of these true but fantasy-like life stories involving Strange Places, smiling Faces and Magical Times.

We Baby Boomers were born with impeccable Timing; from Elvis to Elvis Costello. And beyond! This is my story of growing up in a Cosmic Time that was despised by the Older Generation and enamored by the Young Prophets of Spiritual Adventurism. To clarify; this was an extraordinary and audacious Time of peace, love and misunderstanding. My collaborating colleagues and I learned ‘street smarts’ in dark ‘separate school’ hallways of rigorous vicissitudes. Street smarts that prepared me for a career with the Attorney General in a Time that coincided with a Decade of Cocaine, fast women, bosomy beaches and Castles made of Sand. If You have a sense of humour and a flare for the Dramatic then follow these journeys and escapades of this Paperback Writer through a Time and Space that will never be forgotten or authentically duplicated.

Becoming Unruly is practical and personable, and unlike any self-help book you have read before—there’s nothing “new-agey” going on here! This is self-improvement on steroids: action-oriented and no-holds-barred. Becoming Unruly describes a step-by-step process to explore obsolete rules and practices that are keeping you stuck. It provides creative approaches to personal and professional relationship management, and it includes examples of scenarios that we encounter every day. Dr. Batchelor’s process is ideal for use in education, personal exploration, leadership, and team management and optimization. Each section begins with an activity, and each activity is followed by a detailed debrief of the common responses and lessons the activity has produced over the years. Each step is designed to fit into a larger framework, which is detailed in the last chapter. This framework has proven to be highly effective in corporate settings and is a great tool for leaders. Whether you are a teacher, a student, or a corporate leader, this book captures Dr. Batchelor’s process—the best experiential teaching that can be delivered outside of a classroom.
