Annette Estes, author of Why Can't You See It My Way? Resolving Values Conflicts at Work and Home, has donated three of her books to the Robson Library at The University of the Ozarks in Clarksville, Arkansas.

First published in 2003, Why Can't You See It My Way? explores six values or attitudes that determine people's world views. It explains how conflicts arise because of different values and beliefs and how to resolve those conflicts through understanding one another's diverse viewpoints.

I am passionate about helping people understand themselves and others more clearly and improve their relationships with family, co-workers, and friends, including people they don't necessarily like but have to deal with, Estes says. I received an excellent education at U of O and am pleased to be able to give something back to the university, which is a direct result of the writing skills I learned there.

Why Can't You See It My Way? began as a series of columns in The Easley (SC) Progress newspaper in October of 2002. Estes has been writing for the Progress for five years, and has won two Matrix awards from Women in Communications as best columnist for a non-daily newspaper. Her book also won a Certificate of Achievement from WIC.

Why Can't You See It My Way? is available to the public on e Bay. It's also offered as an eBook at
