Professional reviews

"Both provocative and centering, these 77 questions deliver the message that our health is connected to emotional, social, and spiritual factors that we can change. The author doesn't deny the importance of good blood pressure and lab numbers. But with unerring psychological sensibilities and a sincere altruistic approach, he asks listeners to regain their connections with a broader range of dynamics that impact us throughout life. The principles he promotes can influence almost every realm of life, including satisfaction with relationships and work, enjoyment of life, and our belief that we have value, purpose, and meaning. Though Dr. Finkelstein's speaking voice has a slightly mechanical cadence, his phrasing and overall tone provide a seamless, authentic vehicle for offering these questions and practices. T.W.
