Summary
"The Dreamseller, a philosopher dressed in rumpled clothes, travels the country gathering followers and delivering lessons to those in despair. In this uplifting journey, the Dreamseller demonstrates that societies are comprised of anonymous heroes who go unrecognized for their deeds: cancer patients who fight for their lives like warriors, parents who exhaust their bodies and minds to support and educate their children, and teachers who, despite low wages, enhance the minds of their students. The Dreamseller: The Revolution reveals that the history of mankind is complex: written with tears and joy, tranquillity and anxiety, sanity and madness."-- P. [4] of cover

Summary
The Dreamseller, The Calling is an inspirational fable about a mysterious man who calls himself The Dreamseller. Wherever he goes, he enchants people and inspires them to search for the most important thing: the heart of the human soul. Every person he meets is someone who has abandoned their dreams and is going through a difficult time. Through his questioning, he helps them to overcome their turmoil by getting to the root of their unhappiness. The story begins with an accomplished university professor who threatens to leap off a building and end his life. He is so stirred by The Dreamseller that he follows him and becomes a dreamseller himself. Through the remainder of the story, we meet an alcoholic who has lost his family, and an overweight woman who believes she will never find true love. At the end of this tale the true identity of The Dreamseller is revealed. He is the owner of one of the biggest companies in the world, who married the love of his live and had two beautiful children. But he was always too busy to spend time with them.
