Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Kushner's new book is likely to match his When Bad Things Happen to Good People as a bestseller. In the rabbi's sympathetic and eminently readable guide, discontented people can find reasons to banish doubts on whether living is worthwhile. The Book of Ecclesiastes is the main source of reassurance here, for the spiritually bankrupt. Citing the short entry in the Old Testament as ``the most dangerous in the Bible,'' the author argues that a fear of uselessness is humanity's ancient enemy. Ecclesiastes poured out his complaints that all his wealth and wisdom and achievements were nothing: he must die and be forgotten like an animal. Why does God withhold the power to enjoy the gifts that are the scribe's by the grace of God? Exploring the despair voiced in these pages, Kushner emphasizes the lesson that the unknown writer finally learned more than 1000 years agoevery person matters. Readers will benefit from Kushner's advice on making their lives matter to themselves and others. First serial to Redbook; Literary Guild selection. April 14

    Living in doubt of who you are or why you are?

    I found this book could be most inspiring for anyone from their middleage and older. If you have ever doubted the value of your life or had a question about what really matters in this life...this is a must read. Following the last decade of decadance in both public and private life we need a compass that is compassionate. You may find the lasting model for living life to the fullest, with all the gusto, and all the freedom that you have secretly yearned for over the years. Go for it...now!
