The Constant Choice: An Everyday Journey from Evil Toward Good


Add your own review!

Overview

We live in a most challenging time. Many of us struggle, emotionally, ethically, and spiritually. We seem headed toward less compassion and consideration, failing to overcome that basic instinct that often leads to evil in human behavior--self-preservation at all costs. Yet within each of us a new future is stirring. We can become better people and build a better world by opting for good over evil--one choice at a time. In The Constant Choice, Peter Georgescu offers a gripping narrative of his journey from childhood captivity in a Romanian labor camp to his role as CEO of the world-renowned advertising agency Young & Rubicam. His traumatic youth--his parents' exile from their homeland, his grandfather's murder in prison, his neighbors' betrayal of one another--led to a lifelong struggle to grasp humanity's moral nature. Despite his conviction when he arrived on American soil that he had reached the land of the good, he discovered a more subtle evil at work all around him. Yet he also thrived through the generosity of one benefactor after another. Goodness, he found, isn't inherent; it evolves from daily choice. Through decades of reflection on human behavior, as well as philosophical and spiritual exploration, Peter arrived at a new perspective on the significance of our habitual choices. Every decision we make alters our biological nature, for better or worse--a model that has been confirmed by recent science. The Constant Choice reveals a path for changing who we are and the future of humanity. It's up to each of us to become activists for good.

Reviews

It is with incredible honesty that Peter Georgescu shares his personal journey of spiritual questioning to understand good and evil. The Constant Choice has not only enriched me, but also deepened my relationships. It has prompted in-depth discussions about good and evil, faith and belief, and the purpose of our lives on earth. --Linda Tullis Peter Georgescu's story is outstanding proof that goodness triumphs over evil. Those who survive desperate and evil situations are those who are kind . . . and possibly have a few guardian angels watching over them. These 'angels' reaffirm that there is tremendous goodness in the human heart and spirit. I found this treasure of a book both compelling and touching. --Margaret Sinclair I have always had problems taking the historic God on faith and subscribing to church dogma. Organized religion was spectator sport. When would I ever participate? When I read Peter Georgescu's incredible history and his journey to find his God, I finally got it after all these years. God is inside each of us, helping us do good, helping us conduct constant self-examinations of our actions, and helping us shape a life of compassion. Finally I'm a player. --Polly McTaggart


Author Information

Peter A. Georgescu arrived in America in 1954, after years of forced labor as a child in communist Romania.

His lifelong quest to understand why evil exists led him to ongoing philosophical and spiritual study and an integrative view of morality, religion, and our power to do good and change the world. In 2017, he authored Capitalists, Arise!, encouraging corporate and business leaders to help solve income inequality, increase economic opportunity, and grow the middle class.
