“If Dr. Gruder’s book was out sooner, we might not have fallen into the economic quagmire we are currently trying to crawl out of.”
Barton Goldsmith, Ph.D., PBS radio show host, syndicated columnist, Emotional Fitness book series author

“A once-in-a-generation book, galvanizing the human spirit toward a more positive and evolutionary future, and igniting our inner sense of conscientiousness, honor and integrity.”
Lee Pulos, Ph.D., author of The Power of Visualization and The Biology of Empowerment

“Easily the clearest roadmap for putting one foot in front of the other in the marathon of living closer to our ideals and vision in the raw reality of our day-to-day existence.”
Paula Newby-Fraser, 8-time Ironman Triathlon World Champion, and “Greatest All-Around Female Athlete in the World” by ABC’s Wide World of Sports

“Profound, yet incredibly easy to read and digest – I could barely put it down. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if ‘Dr. David Gruder’ became a household name as the person who spearheaded a massive transition and transformation in our individual, relational and societal integrity and wholeness.”
Constance Wells, Senior Vice-President (retired), Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

“If you only read one book this year about your own development as a truly three-dimensional human being, this is the one!”
George J. Pratt, Ph.D., Chairman, Psychology, Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla; Coauthor, Instant Emotional Healing: Acupressure for the Emotions

“Leaders need an integrity check-up and Dr. David Gruder is just the man to do it. Too many well-meaning leaders haven’t made the connection between their personal and relationship development and their effectiveness in the collective arena. Dr. Gruder’s simple yet powerful integrity model provides a much-needed shot in the arm.”
Ken Blanchard, co-author of The One Minute Manager® and Leading at a Higher Level

The New IQ deals out world peace as a state of mind. By returning Integrity to the top of what we worship, replacing money and power, Dr. Gruder ushers in the Manifesto of World Peace for the unborn generations of the Global Village in All countries. Those who carry this book, regard Integrity as their priority in parenting, relationship, leadership, career and religious thought. Those who pass on reading The New IQ put integrity lower on their agenda and have lower IQ’s as a result.”
BJ Dohrmann, inventor of Super Teaching, Chairman of CEO Space International

“As a radio host I read thousands of self-help books, but I consider this the only indispensable one, and I can’t recommend it enough…”
Suzanna Axisa, life coach and radio host of Lanto’s Lantern for the discerning self-helper

“If more people understood Dr. Gruder’s definition of synergy, and the difference between compromise and true win-win collaboration, we could see a lot more happy marriages and a lot fewer wars.”
Shel Horowitz, award-winning author of Principled Profit: Marketing That Puts People First, founder of the Business Ethics Pledge, http://www.business-ethics-pledge.org

Robert Schwarz, Psy.D. National Director of Mars Venus Workplace Seminars

“Any human resources executive in the role of being the organization’s moral compass or ‘canary in the coal mine’ should make this a must-read, among the more standard business literature.”
Victoria Berger-Gross, Senior Vice President – Human Resources, Tiffany & Co.

“A practical handbook by a pragmatic visionary, Dr. Gruder offers in The New IQ a powerful lens that reframes many of the problems that vex us today, from our most intimate personal relationships to the international issues that now plague humankind, casting them in a light that makes creating more useful breakthroughs possible.”
Robert W. Fuller, Ph.D., co-founder of The Hunger Project, former president of Oberlin College.

The New IQ is right on target! If policy makers and leaders from both the developed and developing world took Gruder’s words of wisdom to heart, we would see less political game playing and rhetoric on the international stage and a real movement towards fulfilling the human rights and dignity of vulnerable populations in our world.”
Aileen Kwa, co-author of Behind the Scenes at the WTO (World Trade Organization): The Real World of International Trade Negotiations

The New IQ goes beyond the usual self-understanding or self-help book by showing the individual how to function with integrity not only in her or his immediate surroundings, but, as well, as a contributing part of the larger society.”

A most excellent and important read, both for today’s leaders and the leaders of tomorrow.”
Mort Mondale, retired National Educational Association professional development specialist; brother of former Vice President Walter Mondale

Belleruth Naparstek, author of Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma & How They Heal; and creator of the Health Journeys guided imagery audio series

Larry Stoler, MSSA, Ph.D., psychologist, social worker and president of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology
