Common sense is like great music, mesmerizing art or funny jokes; difficult to pinpoint but we all recognize it when we see it. In this book, Hans M. Hirschi explores the concept of common sense, through philosophy, reflection and practice.
Using his thorough experience from business and management from all corners of the world, Hans demonstrates that "common sense" is not as common as you might think. What is regarded as common sense in Sweden isn’t necessarily true in China, Tunisia or Brazil. He uses clear examples to provide insight into cultural differences that affect the world of business as well as everyday life.
This book will help you use your common sense all over the world– in Business and in Life.
The picture on the cover shows Jonas Olson in Bishop Hill. Scarred by life but seemingly unbroken. Born the son of a farmer in Söderala parish, Helsingland, Sweden. A father who drank and was abusive. Jonas had to take over his parents’ homestead early in life. His first wife died during childbirth. Remarried, two daughters reached adulthood. Head of his household, local parish trustee, juror of the district court, salmon merchant, well-read, profound knowledge of the Bible, and used to writing. He was a so called reader (läsare in Swedish), a devotionalist and spokesman for temperance in southern Helsingland, and a leader of the pietists of his congregation. Unafraid, determined, and tactical – a sly leader. And a leading organizer of the emigration from Helsingland to America in 1846. (Vulkan 2017)

“In this gripping triptych, Hans M. Hirschi presents three very different and deeply moving portraits of gay family life.
While each is a complete story in its own right, all three share common themes, exploring the devastating impact of death, the deep wounds left by abuse, the damage wreaked by homophobia, and, ultimately, the power of love to overcome and heal.” - Debbie McGowan, Publisher Beaten Tack Publishing
“An emerging master storyteller.” - Diane Anderson-Minshall, Advocate magazine

Suffering through loss of family members and lovers to great happiness with new beginnings and the challenges of parenthood. Teenagers living and surviving the experiences of abuse, fear, abandonment and homelessness for their sexuality." - Ursula

Raphael doesn't believe in a higher power, or in anything, for that matter. After the death of his son, his life shattered, Raphael regrets that he didn't lie about some perfect paradise, and he pushes away everything that once mattered to him—his lover, his job, his reputation as a top architect. Then he meets Brian, a homeless, maybe hopeless kid, a street kid. When he disappears, Raphael realizes that he cannot fail another person, and he launches a full-out search. What he finds both breaks his heart and begins to heal it. The price of saving Brian is high, maybe too high. But Raphael is no stranger to sacrifice, and he'll risk everything to save Brian and reunite with the man Raphael now loves. The question is - how? Like the architecture of the opera house Raphael designs, the steps to regaining his life will depend not just on careful planning, but faith, hope, and maybe just the magic of love.
