Find a Growth Purpose to Make Life Meaningful

What a fascinating book! It is so clear that the author has given much time, effort, and research on this topic and brings us his findings. He perceives the meaning of life to be growth. Working with that precept, he then reverse engineers what is needed to support or inform that. He's come up with seven other concepts that provide those functions. There are long and detailed chapters about the foundational idea as well as these further concepts. The

"Automating too much of the present while thinking about the past or future can reduce the meaning and importance of the moment."

A five-star review because this is a book by my friend, Nate! My nonbiased opinion is a 3.5.

If you want stories, poetry, and inspiration, there are other books in the “Meaning of Life” section of the bookstore that you can easily find.

This book is excellent if you are the type of person who likes to read Wikipedia for fun. It’s very analytical, straight forward, and t

This is a profound book which aims to answer the question about meaning of life. Instead of giving one answer the author guides the reader through 8 key concepts growth, experience, desire, belief, emotions ethics, support and choice. Each of these concepts are introduced in a chapter which gives context, explanations and plenty of research. After each comes a questionnaire and several tasks to complete. In this way the reader can build his/her individual blueprint for a personal meaning of life ...more

This book was very well constructed. It doesn't just guide you to the meaning of life it introduces you to eight concepts that will help you find it. It is filled with exercises and ideas. I would recommend this book to those wanting to find the "meaning of life."

I would like to thank Netgalley and the Publisher for providing me with a copy free of charge. This is my honest and unbiased opinion of it.

In a word: Excellent. I've read a lot of self-help, and this doesn't contain the fluff that much of it does. The author offers great info no matter where you're coming from in life or geography or attitude. This is no small feat. Highly recommended.

Thank you very much for the review copy!!
