    Review

    The meaning of life has always been a topic of debate. Why are we here? What happens when we die? There are so many questions and I don't really have the slightest clue to what the answers are. The Manual for Living helped bring new ideas to light, as well as reinforcing the certain aspects of living that I already knew. It's full of knowledge and the entire book just seems to flow. If you're interested in learning more about humans and spiritual journeys, I recommend this book.

    great book

    I bought this book as I left a job without a plan, trusting that if you jump off the cliff you'll land on your feet because the universe loves you. Manual For Living was released just as I was making my decision to jump and felt like a sign so I bought it. I was glad I did. This book accomplishes what it sets out to do. I should back up a little though. I worked for this author about ten years ago at one of his companies. For most books this would be irrelevant but for this topic I think the experience and character of the source is what makes all the difference, and that's something I can tell you about first hand. Chernoff is perfectly suited to write a manual for living. Just as you would only hire a fit personal trainer, Chernoff has the results in his own life. This is someone who lives with clarity on his own terms, has overcome severe adversity, functions at a very high level, is truly helpful to others and enjoys every bit of his experience. The title actually cracks me up. I picture a few exotic car engineers standing around their latest creative pursuit asking, "who should we have write the owners manual?". Yes, this is our guy. You can spend time with this book going through each section or you can pick it up, open it at random and spend 2 minutes finding a topic to contemplate before you head out to run errands. It'll help you either way to stay on track or, depending on your circumstances, at least remember which direction the tracks are in. I highly recommend this one.
