Manual For Living Connection Book2

Title : Manual For Living Connection Book2 [A user's guide to the meaning of life]

Author : Seth David Chernoff

Publisher : Spirit Scope

Connection is, as the book says, a manual for living. The book explores the theme of connection from various angles through a series of questions. The author tries to explain the meaning and relevance of the term in our lives. What are the obstacles that come in the way of connectivity -problems in communicating , judgement, anger, disagreement and how we can overcome them to live a meaningful and mindful life by claiming the power that is within. Its a guide to responsible living by a man who has gone through his own problems and triumphed.

The author in Socratic fashion tries to seek answers to the complexity of life by questioning it. The questions he asks are simple but he reaches deep down to answer them.

The chapters are short but packed with wisdom so the book is a slow read. Its not a book to be read at one time, it slowly grows on you. The subject matter does get heavy. Its still a relevant subject for the times we live in where we struggle to make connections. It is insightful and inspiring even though what it says has been said before. It is still worth reading and if you can take even one insight and apply it in your life it is worth your time and money.
