Why?: What Your Life Is Telling You about Who You Are and Why You're Here Reviews

  • Pam

    The book is only 135 pages but they pack a punch. The exercises are relevant and offer clarity and guidance. I will keep this book and refer to it often.

  • Karen Rubin

    An existential conundrum: “I’ve done everything ‘right,’ so why am I so unhappy?” This question rather than being seen as a dead end, leading to spinning in confusion, frustration, and ultimate resignation, is according to authors McKay, ÓLaoire and Metzner the essential/pivotal question to ask. This question will force you to stop looking everywhere else for answers and instead to begin to look within. Your own life experiences and choices (not someone else’s) become your very rich research mat

    An existential conundrum: “I’ve done everything ‘right,’ so why am I so unhappy?” This question rather than being seen as a dead end, leading to spinning in confusion, frustration, and ultimate resignation, is according to authors McKay, ÓLaoire and Metzner the essential/pivotal question to ask. This question will force you to stop looking everywhere else for answers and instead to begin to look within. Your own life experiences and choices (not someone else’s) become your very rich research material. The authors offer thoughts on what constitutes true happiness, on the need to align our values with our ideals and suggest that fulfilling our purpose is far greater than insuring personal happiness, but is, in fact, of global, even cosmic significance. Along with clear and inspiring prose, the authors offer “exercises” to help each reader effectively analyze their experiences and accurately identify the patterns therein. Given the increased complexity of the world in which we find ourselves, and the choices we see before us as individuals and as a planet, this book could not have come at a better time to help us outfit ourselves for the evolution to come.

    This is a book I had the opportunity to read via Goodreads Giveaways. Overall a short, small book with many big, important, life enhancing messages. The guided reflections and exercises are excellent tools to help along your personal journey. This is one that will require being revisited to allow its potential to truly maximize your life. Great book for someone who's lost their bearings.

  • Celia Juliano

    A concise study of our purpose and how we can each determine our unique path. I still need to try the exercises, but if they are as thought-provoking as the text, this little book will prove itself very useful. Why? is a refreshing read in the sometimes overwhelmingly crowded self-help category.

  • Mai

    Very insightful and helpful read .It really helped me figure out what blocks me from making progress in my life by answering just few question and it opened my eyes to the truth of our existence on Earth and what our mission is really about from spiritual perspective

    Eye-opening and life changing book that I highly recommend :)

  • Gordclements

    A very rational, practical and compelling book encouraging a shift from our outward looking, inward. One of the more relevant themes being the importance of exploring, investigating and revising our outdated cosmological vision inherited by cultural conditioning, “to avoid pain and seek out pleasant experiences”.

  • Maureen

    some interesting questions to direct to yourself

  • Jenny

    It was fine in theory, but I'm probably just not in the mood for the message (as I am sick and therefore a little "down"). The book tells us not to get tied up in the instinct of avoiding pain and seeking pleasure. That if you avoid pain by numbing it with pleasure seeking activities, the lessons you need to learn (i.e. the suffering you need to go through) will be repeated over and over again. Kind of made me feel depressed.

    I do like the idea that we have been given all these "rules" by societ

    I do like the idea that we have been given all these "rules" by society and our families, but they are not necessarily correct, and we need not blindly follow them. But I was put off a little by the idea that rule breakers are punished by society (or seen as crazy).

    As I said, I'm probably not in the right frame of mind at the moment to have read this book. Two and a half stars.
