This was an easy read but it did not ave much meaning or helpful tips. The author uses his experiences just like any other author and of course he sees himself as the only one or one of the few unlucky sufferers. His weakness is his faith, although faith is great you expect more from the title and the intellegence of a well known author such as bell. He falls back on the instincts of feeling secure and needing someone to tell you what to do (religion). If bell could prove he has meaning in his life without falling on animal instinct he could be great for now he is a simply dillusional and in some ways bitter man, and his book shows it.
