Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite Having read in the foreword of Thoughts on Life: Random and Otherwise by Jennifer Rego that “...most of which I knew extremely well have already been penned and hence these thoughts...,” it was with a bit of apprehension that I approached the book. My fears were unfounded; this book is wisdom from the very first page to the last. Jennifer covers a broad range of topics; from finance, where she describes the stockbroker as the only beneficiary of short term investment, to human destiny, where she pontificates on the importance of taking risks in the accomplishment of our dreams - there is nowhere her attention does not fall. Sometimes she bats for green tea, or makes new adages like “every purchase you make is a vote with your dollar.” She also feels intimidated and silenced by food libel laws, and reasonably so. Thoughts on Life: Random and Otherwise by Jennifer Rego is a repository of good sense. It can successfully replace all the wisdom we would have found in quite a few books. From light hearted remarks about the demise of post offices to well considered opinions about the health care imbroglio, this book houses them all. Though Jennifer is attracted to many streams of philosophy, especially of Indian background, the obscurity permeating such thoughts is noticeable by its absence. Most of the discussions are on real, day to day issues like the ones mentioned above, and are definitely of practical applicability. That makes this book a worthy companion or a recommended daily read. Well done, Jennifer!
