After a lifetime in book publishing, Peter Guzzardi had edited a remarkable group of diverse authors, from Stephen Hawking to Deepak Chopra, from Carol Burnett to Douglas Adams.. Yet everything he’d learned from working with them felt oddly familiar. One day it suddenly became clear: all that wisdom had its roots in a film he’d watched as a child, “The Wizard of Oz.” That revelation led to his first book ‘Emeralds of Oz: Life Lessons From Over the Rainbow’. Deepak Chopra says: “The nine Emeralds in this book provide a powerful, near-magical tool for navigating any difficult situation. I have been using them myself, and my life is more effortless, spontaneous, and joyful.”
