Living joyfully is very attainable. All you need is the right combination of wisdom and skills in order to do this. This book will teach you how to become a happier person and will empower you to make the lives of others better as well. It will help you unlock the chains that are holding you back from living a happy, more productive life.

Charlene's Review:

Rabbi Yitz Wyne gives us insight into finding more joy in our lives. In Secret 2: Choosing Joy, he states that "we create a lot of our own frustration, dissatisfaction and misery." It is totally up to us whether or not we choose happiness. His book, Life is Great, breaks the steps down, one by one, to the path that leads to joy in every day situations. Secret #7: Finding Your Greater Purpose focuses on what he refers to as the three major areas in life that can lead you to a more meaningful and happy life. These are our heart, or what we put our emotions into; our soul, or our time; and our resources, as the use of our money. Finding our purpose leads us to living more joyfully.

There are some basic, refreshing truths in the pages of Life is Great. Rabbi Yitz Wyne writes in a sincere, straightforward manner, and backs his beliefs with the teachings of Jewish tradition and the Torah. Some of his writing was a bit confusing for me, as I am not familiar with Judaism. Having said that, there is still much to learn from his book. At the end of every chapter there are points to remember, and, my personal favorite, an "if you want to experience more" exercise. Rabbi Yitz Wyne writes with wisdom and clarity, outlining simple truths leading to more joyful living. There is something for everyone here, regardless of religious beliefs or life background. As he states himself, "Happier people make the world a better place."
