Overview

Too many people seek fulfillment in things that can never fill the basic human need for satisfaction and significance—things like money, fame, power and pleasure. If you’re not so sure of that premise, ask yourself why there are so many people who are as miserable as they are famous, rich, powerful or hedonistic. We are definitely shaped for something more. If you’ve ever asked yourself, Is this all there is? this book will give you a new perspective. Pat Williams draws on his own life experiences and from the lives of friends and acquaintances—including many who have attained all the money, fame, power and pleasure anyone could want. They have it all, yet their lives seem empty and joyless. If you’ve ever felt disillusioned about life, this book can help you find a new direction. Don’t just mark time until your life runs out. The wisdom in these pages will enable you to truly make your life count for all eternity. These are the things worth living for . . . and the things worth dying for.
