Overview

This is the first paperback edition of the classic gift book.

It's an age-old question that has stumped the great minds of history: What is the meaning of life? In his hilarious and uplifting style, best-selling author Bradley Trevor Greive finally provides the answer: Figure out what you love and do it.

Illustrated with playful photographs of animals, BTG's insightful prose again hits his target straight on. He muses about why we're here and our greater purpose in the grand scheme of things. His informal style provides a refreshing counterpoint to what has always been one of life's big debates. For example, when it comes to discovering your passion, BTG writes, "First, no one else will tell you about it--it's just like walking around all day with a sign on your back that says KICK ME.

The Meaning of Life is a witty, thought-provoking book that makes an ideal gift for anyone who's seeking their true purpose--and wants to laugh along the way.

* NOTE: The price on the cover is an easily removable sticker.

I was really bored and kind of blue when I came across this witty little book. I flipped it open lazily, read the first few pages... and couldn't put it down! It was really funny and the photographs are very well done and chosen. I had laughed, wondered, questioned, and even shed a tear by the time I was done. An EXCELLENT book! Thank you and congratsulations, Bradley Trevor Greive! I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

This is officially the cutest, wisest, funniest book I've ever read. I looked at the other similar books by this author and they will cheer anyone up, anytime. I literally laughed out loud in the store! Highly suggested as a gift for a friend, family member, etc.

Of course what was I supposed to expect from a book that was supposed to tell me 'the meaning of life'? I was sick of finding meaning in my own life b/c living on earth was just horrible;nothing was going right. The topic of the book seemed so cliqued and boring. Everyone is trying to discover who they are and why they are on the planet. And I figured this was just some person's way of ripping people off by talking about one of the biggest issues people face in life. To put it simply: I was wrong. The book was so creative with hilarious pictures of animals and the message was displayed so uniquely. The book has changed my life for the better. I found a new richness in life because of the book and enjoy reading it whenever I need encouragement. The book is absorbing, interesting, funny, and memorable.

i thought the pictures were really cute, but also the message you get from their captions is some great advice for all those people who are going through hard existential crises in their lives. i bought it as a christmas present for two people, and everyone i know who's read it, has loved it.

The age old saying holds true; you don't choose a book, it chooses you. At a time when I needed some motivation in my life, I found this book. The pictures of the animals and thier funny expressions make you smile, along with the positive messages the book delivers. It was truly written from the heart.

I am from México and I find the book in my library, before I started to read it I was very sad , troubled and confused. Then this small and funny book made me laugh at myself and change my point of view. Now I feel good and I would like to thank the author personaly but I know it is imposible I thank him anyway and I encorage him to continue helping others throw his writings.

This book always brings a smile to my face. It is funny and the pictures are very cute. The Meaning of Life is the kind of book that you think about long after you've finished.

I was unsatisfied with this book. It is quite cliche and far more shallow than the title would imply. Maybe I expected too much, but I assumed there would be some wisdom here deeper than can be found in a Hallmark greeting card. If you're looking for an amazing book of wisdom, try 'Open Your Mind, Open Your Life' by Taro Gold

This book was recommended to me by a friend. After reading it, I went out and bought 2 more copies to give out to my family. It is cute and touching at the same time. It doesn't solve all the questions of life, but would you really want it to? Read this for a smile and a good look at yourself.

This book while light really does have a nice message and at the same time the pictures of the animals are hilarious. It would be a great book for someone who is in the hospital or for graduation or just for fun. I can't say enough about how great this book is except that I plan to buy 2 copies knowing that sometime I will want to give them as gifts.
