OFF THE COUCH INTO THE WAR OF HEART AND MIND BY BUDD MACKENZIE

Step into a world of courage and compassion with “Off the Couch Into The War of Hearts and Mind,” where author Budd Mackenzie shares his riveting experiences working in Afghanistan, offering readers a profound glimpse into an impoverished war torn culture so different than ours.

Budd Mackenzie, a humanitarian with over a twenty year’s experience in providing aid to Afghan villages and families, delivers a powerful narrative that intertwines personal anecdotes with gripping accounts of his twenty trips to Afghanistan.  Through captivating storytelling and poignant photography, Mackenzie invites readers to reflect on the transformative impact of coming to the aid of those less fortunate.

“Off the Couch Into The War of Hearts and Mind” also provides the reader with insight into the history of the United States’ clandestine involvement in the country. He soon learned that we should have never provided weapons to the mujahideen to wage war against the Russians inside Afghanistan from 1979 – 1989 (“Charlie Wilson’s War”). It led to over thirty years of war, millions dying, fleeing the country and the Taliban being in control today.

Whether you’re a seasoned humanitarian or someone seeking to make a positive impact, Mackenzie urges the reader to do, as he did twenty-one years ago, get off the couch.  He learned through his work in Afghanistan that the greatest rewards in life come from the impact we have on the lives of others. Purchase this book today, and start your journey and discover the transformative power of service.
