When author Naomi W. Zaslow summarizes her book “The ABC’s of Values: A Treasure of Thoughts for Living” (published by AuthorHouse), she leaves little to the imagination:

“From men walking in breadlines, to men walking on the moon; from women's place being in the home, to her place being CEO of corporations; from a struggle to succeed in life, to the responsibilities it entails, The ABC's of Values deals with ideas and ideals that are essential in living life.”

These ideals that are “essential in living life” have become – in a nation where 14 million of its workers are unemployed (Bureau of Labor Statistics) – all the more precious. Yet, Zaslow knows that even in an economic slow-growth, innovations continue to occur. She sees this most often in technology and notes that such advancements may run the risk of leaving pockets of society behind.

“The transformation of society is inevitable, leading to an older generation's questioning the new,” says Zaslow. “But some ways of interacting with others, keeping reasonable and responsible standards, are vital to living a good and fulfilled life in every generation.”

These standards of value take center stage in “The ABC’s of Values.” In the book Zaslow takes value-centered words (Acceptance, Bravery, Conformity…etc.) and pairs them with famous quotes, followed by her own lived-and-learned experiences of the word. Each word entry is aimed at encouraging self confidence and self improvement, all with the goal of learning to live a better life.

Zaslow, forever an optimist, sees her new work as an uplifting set of tools for an often overwhelmed world. “I was inspired to write this book so that what helped me navigate through life happily and successfully might be of value to others.”
