Read in May, 2010

This is the third (I think) of Kushner's books I've read now in the past year. He has a knack for taking literature and Biblical references and applying them to contemporary daily lives in a way that is both thought-provoking and inspiring. I found much of what he wrote to be affirming; it's easy to see why he's been so successful as both a rabbi and a sort of "self-help" author. This particular book helps one understand why knowing oneself is critical to being able to move forward in life, and why living one's own life rather than trying to "copy" someone else's is vital in feeling that "I'm ok, you're ok" (though he would never use those words, I don't think) as we move through life.
