About this author

Sonia Taitz is a playwright, essayist, and author of THE WATCHMAKER’S DAUGHTER, a memoir described by PEOPLE magazine as “funny and heartwrenching.”

The book has been recommended by VANITY FAIR, KIRKUS, The American Library Association (which nominated it for the Sophie Brody Medal), and READER’S DIGEST, which put it on its “Can’t-Miss” List. Author/critic James Wolcott described the book as having “the beauty of a psalm,” adding that it should be immortalized on film by Steven Spielberg; CNN’s Mark Whitaker said that “Sonia Taitz writes with an artist’s eye and a poet’s voice,” and Academy Award, Tony, and Pulitzer Prize-winner John Patrick Shanley (DOUBT, MOONSTRUCK) proclaimed: “Sonia Taitz has a good heart and an unmortgaged soul. Follo

Sharon Salzberg tells a story about a boy who hears about two warring wolves. One is good and one is evil. He asks his father: Which one will win? The answer is "The one you feed."

What we give our attention to can be the making of us, or the making of our destruction.
