This is no escape literature proclaiming that all is well with this fear- ridden world. Neither is it a theological or even, strictly speaking, a religious book. It is not written especially for Jews, although the author is a Rabbi with many years of ministry in the synagogue behind him. It will appeal equally to those Catholics, Protestants and Jews who love life and who want to love it and live it to the full. It is a wise and spiritually minded man who writes about the sort of life that is worth living, the elements of ""success"", marriage, motherhood, fatherhood, children, growing old, death, a sense of humor, the power of environment. Not a great book, but a good one written by ""one of the celebrants of life who humbly believes that he might help his neighbor toward the development of those healthy attitudes which are essential for the enjoyment of living"".
