    Order more than one copy

    My husband and I have given many of copies of this book to friends, relatives, and therapists. Part psychology, part philosopy mixed wth generous humanity, it is a book to read more than once.

    Read this Book!

    Spitzer offers a very practical outlook on how to maximize happiness, how to improve out relationships, and bring about positive change in the lives of our families and friends. He also discusses the life issues, abortion and euthanasia, and lays a strong foundation for the prolife philosophy. I've found this book to be quite helpful in my own life and i've even purchased a few copies for friends. Read this book!!
