Product Reviews

Out of all of the self-help books that I’ve read (and there have been many!) this is the one and only book that left a profound impression on how I view the world.
Jacqueline, Amazon
This book is filled with wisdom. I don't know how anyone can be this emotionally intelligent and self-aware. I bought it a week ago and it's already helped me so much. This is basically one of the best books I have ever read. If you're stuck or in pain, you need to read this.
Erin, Amazon
A must-read for everyone. This seminal book literally changed the way I think and ultimately changed my life.

What It Means To Be Human
What It Means To Be Human

I believe that the root of the work of being human is learning how to think. From this, we learn how to love, share, coexist, tolerate, give, create, and so on. I believe the first and most important duty we have is to actualize the potential we were born with — both for ourselves and for the world. The unspoken line of everything I write is: “This idea changed my life.” And I hope this book does that for you. I hope it makes you question everything you know about life, and who you are. I hope it deeply inspires you to change and to be the person who does things differently. I hope it inspires you to grow into the kind of human being you have always wanted to be.
