Prejudice and stereotyping are big problems in the modern world. But where do these ideas stem from? When we cast judgement over someone we do not know, what determines how we look at them? Follow Paul Turner as he shares his own personal journey of discovery through the help of mentoring.It's a Beautiful Day explores the ways in which people can bring out the best in themselves, their family and those around them.

This book examines the source of this perception and offers ways to break through years of negative input in our lives.Recognising that change in society goes beyond our governments and the money they spend on programs to improve life, this book looks at ways to utilise peoples' potentials and set them on their own paths of discovery. Delve in and learn the ways in which you can look at yourself and the people around you in a new and positive way.
Paul Turner was brought up on a government housing estate just outside the historic city of Oxford, England. Although Oxford is classed as one of the world's great seats of learning, famous for nurturing some of the world's mighty leaders and academics of our time, that did not apply to Paul. As he approached his teens he was subjected to a difficult time that scarred him for life. He later married and moved to Australia to start a new life, where a lot of the old prejudices in his mind about himself gradually faded away. This new lease on life allowed him to work his way through academia to become a Professor of Tropical Medicine.
