"Is global ecological collapse approaching? Award winning author Joseph Jenkins has woven a mysterious tapestry of theories, principles and facts about the Earth and the species Homo sapiens into a thought-provoking, enlightening, and utterly disturbing book. Remarkably timely, this page-turner is a must-read for all those who are concerned about human consciousness and our collective future."

Dire predictions and alarming warnings by the world's scientists indicate our planet is out of balance and a planetary ecological collapse is impending. Most Americans, however, don't seem to understand the urgency of our precarious situation here on Earth. Why the widespread lack of concern as our planetary life support systems disintegrate around us?

Until her sudden and inexplicable death in 1999, Dr. Lucille Boggs, a maverick scientist at a large western university, had been uncovering surprising answers as to why people are so indifferent to environmental degradation. Balance Point tells the story of her research through the eyes of her nephew, who receives her Last Will and Testament and, with it, becomes her final hope. Lured by the promise of a rich inheritance, Joseph Jenkins reluctantly assumes responsibility for finishing Dr. Boggs' work, inadvertently plunging himself and his family into the midst of a puzzle of global proportions.

Balance Point takes the reader on a page-turning adventure from the author's comfortable Pennsylvania home to the farthest reaches of civilization in a search to solve Lucy's puzzle. On their quest to locate the missing links to her mystery, though, they discover that some answers lie closer to home, and that sometimes, the only way to find them is to look inside oneself.

A timely book with cutting-edge relevance, Balance Point's message is one that will be carried with you long after the last page has been turned. Although highly recommended for anyone concerned about the state of the planet, it also makes a great gift for the environmentally complacent.
