Perlas, an author, Alternative Nobel Prize awardee, international lecturer, environmentalist and integral sustainable development expert ran for president in 2010 elections but lost to President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
The book is a tell-all story of an emerging movement called Mission and how it is making strides to change the world.

Bestselling author Neale Donald Walsch, in his latest book, “Storm before the calm” cited Perlas and Mission as doing cutting edge societal threefolding work that is essential to the “creation of humanity’s new cultural story.”
The citation enabled Mission to be introduced worldwide to over a million people who are expected to read Walsch’s book.
A digital version of Mission Possible that can be accessed though the Internet is also in the making.
