Learn how to gain clarity through times of darkness and confusion, develop attitudes that deepen relationships, decrease cynicism and find joy in the daily miracles that fill our lives.
Researchers cannot explain why people, when blindfolded, are unable to travel in a straight line; but what does it tell us about ourselves that our nature inclines us to wander in circles? What does NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s plan for “congestion pricing” to ease traffic reveal about the way we make decisions? What can fig harvesting, migraine headaches, and two Miss America titleholders teach us about the underpinnings of emotional well-being? The answers are here.
This is what the Midwest Book Review has to say: “Real definitions of love and happiness are provided in a blend of proverbs and analysis that will delight those thinkers who want a lively discourse of possibilities and alternative visions.”
