For negative experiences - if processed well - can also contribute to the heart of a human being. Mould one's character.

Sebil Minco,
Auschwitz survivor

We never know how high we  are
Till we are asked to rise
And then if we are true to plan
Our statures touch the skies -

Emily Dickinson

   


RECEPTION

"Roelofs has been listening and watching very well. The interviewed persons come 
alive before your eyes. 
An inspiring book."

“An accessible writing style. Food for thought.” 
(Dutch National Public Library)
.

"A series of remarkable interviews."(professional journal: Care and health)

 


The Chinese word for crisis consists of two characters: wei and ji. The first character means danger, the second opportunity. In TURNING POINT the author looks at crises in the light those characters. The book contains stories of eleven people who changed the course of their life in a positive direction after a personal crisis or a series of far reaching life events. The stories are told by people as different as a piano teacher, a family doctor, a policeman and an opera singer. Their problems vary from the death of a child and the loss of a job till a destructive relationship and imprisonment in nazi concentration camps.
