By reading this koob, you will learn that having a meaningful life isn’t as lofty a concept as it might seem and that everybody’s life can carry purpose and meaning.

You will also learn:

  • Strategies to help you discover what is meaningful to you

  • Ways to find, create, and increase meaning in your life

  • Your life may already be significantly meaningful without you recognizing it

  • Suffering and meaning can coexist

  • Arguments both for and against there being positive meaning in life

  • Your life’s meaning does not depend on your life goals

  • Small, regular goals and rewards are just as important as big, time-consuming ones

You might currently think your life is meaningless. Is that because all lives are, or is it because of the life you, specifically, are leading? If you had made different choices, would your life have more meaning? These are existential questionings that can feel overwhelming. Yet, your life could have meaning if you were to change some aspects about it. Philosophy Professor Iddo Landau argues why and how meaning can be added to your life if you feel it’s lacking. Are you ready to discover ways to add more value, worth, and thus meaning to your life?

I am a Buddhist. And I think that any one who understands Buddhist philosophy will probably disagree with what the author says about some things. Buddhists, along with many other people of varying beliefs, believe in rebirth. And like the author says, if you’re mindful, you can mitigate that causes and conditions of life and make the right decisions to better your life as well as the lives of others. Your good and bad deeds will follow you, making the good decisions you made, very meaningful.

The best book I have read on this subject. It analyze it through, presents opposing views and those in between, and offers practical advise.
