Self-Improvement, and Recovery:
Why does a person devote so much energy, time and money, seeking the new, special and different? What is he really looking for when he searches out all of the myriad distractions and amusements, so abundant in modern day society? Is it not the Pursuit of happiness-- the driving force of all man's action and creativity under the sun? The Torah, rather than commanding us to suppress this drive, encourages and even exalts these feelings...but through its unique system. Torah provides a deeper definition of the term 'happiness'. Torah-true happiness is an approach to life, the product of developing your personality. This book is a practical and realistic guide to internalizing this trait. Enhanced with inspiring tales and practical examples, it is highly effective in uplifting the spirit, leading to gladness of the heart and joy of the soul!
