Da migliaia di anni una tavola dal valore inestimabile nasconde uno dei segreti più ambiti dall’uomo: la formula dell’eterna giovinezza. Il prezioso oggetto è stato nascosto e protetto per molto tempo dalla storia, che ne ha fatto dimenticare persino l’esistenza. Adesso, però, qualcuno intende recuperarlo ed è disposto a tutto per impossessarsene e decifrare il misterioso testo che è inciso nella pietra. Nel corso dei secoli la tavola è passata di generazione in generazione, segnando il destino di molte persone in una lunga spirale di intrighi e morte: come quello di Yagurum, un bambino vissuto mille anni prima della nascita di Cristo; di Fiammetta, giovane amante di un camerlengo nella Roma rinascimentale; di Alex Kasakian, informatico squattrinato e di Ann Carrington, brillante insegnante universitaria, esperta di linguaggi antichi.

La vida actual exige un alto nivel de comunicación oral, en las entrevistas de trabajo, las exposiciones frente a un público, la participación en programas de radio o TV, los debates, las manifestaciones, las peticiones o los acuerdos de una vida democrática. Asimismo, los sistemas educativos se han concentrado exclusivamente en la enseñanza de la lengua escrita y han descuidado la comunicación oral, al dar por sentado que las personas espontáneamente pueden comunicarse y, en consecuencia, saben escuchar y hablar. Por otra parte, este mundo veloz y casi inasible requiere de enunciados rápidos, concisos y cortos para establecer vínculos que no se diluyan y permanezcan en el tiempo. Por lo tanto, hace falta un programa para afianzar el lenguaje en la memoria. En este sentido, el método CRC ofrece a todos la posibilidad de desarrollarse como hablante competente en cualquier situación comunicativa y, así, enfrentarse a todo público que demande nuestros pensamientos y opiniones.
Este método se ha diseñado especialmente para todos aquellos que deseen desarrollarse como líderes, emprendedores y comunicadores sociales. Quienes practiquen sus enseñanzas se sorprenderán de lo que serán capaces de realizar.
