Dorothie Hellman
After spending several decades following a relationship map that had her repeatedly driving off cliffs, Dorothie found the courage to piece together a new map that allowed her to reach the place of love and peace where she had always wanted to dwell. That allowed her transform an almost failed marriage into one in which anger became a nightmare of the past.

Dorothie has spent more than half her life studying anger, fear and grief, as well as joy, love and compassion. Practicing compassion is the centerpiece of her part of this book.

Marty calls himself a world-class fool and is proud of it. His research on encryption was originally seen as a fool’s errand, but it recently won him the ACM’s million-dollar Turing Award—often regarded as the Nobel Prize in computing. Following Dorothie down an uncharted path that even she could not fully describe until they reclaimed the true love that they felt when they first met also seemed like a fool’s errand, but it proved even more rewarding. Even a million dollars can’t buy true love.
