From the Author:
When someone asks me to name my favorite among all the books I’ve written, I ask them what a parent of three or four or six children might say if asked to name their favorite, and they get the point: I love them all. No one is better, only different.
Certainly my first, or signature book, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, is best known, and close to my heart. Yet each book provides its own unique facets. And yet . . . and yet . . . I do have a special feeling about The Four Purposes of Life. Because it truly delivers on the promise of its subtitle — “finding meaning and direction in a changing world.”
ccccThis book, which offers hope as well as encouraging reminders, is both timely and timeless, exploring and answering deep (yet often unasked) questions at the core of our lives: What am I here to do? What do I really want? Is getting what I want going to take me to where I want to be? And finally, What is the purpose of my life?
This book contains some important elements from earlier books, but for the first time places them in their proper context. After reading it once, and even again, most readers will experience a quantum leap in wisdom and perspective that can last a lifetime
