Warm, humorous, and inspirational lessons on turning life's difficult moments into opportunities for growth.
This moving memoir by licensed clinical psychologist Dan Saferstein begins with the death of his sister, a watershed event in which he finds the seeds of life change, and, ironically, the beginning of a deepened appreciation of his marriage. With great insight and humor, Saferstein tells us what he has learned in life: about love, sex, and companionship, and about money, careers, and family. His talent for finding just the right catch phrase renders his writing accessible without being preachy, and profound without being dark. Building on a tradition made successful by such authors as Marianne Williamson, Iyanla Vanzant, Rabbi Harold Kushner, and others, Love for the Living offers real-life lessons about things that matter, that happen to all of us, and from which there is much to be learned.
