Product Description

"A great inspiring book for everyone"


Life: what is it all about? Why do we often approach it the wrong way? Why are there so many pitfalls we have to be careful of?

We all want the best for our offspring as they grow into adulthood. We want them to have WISDOM, to learn from our mistakes, to be aware of the wonderful and not-so-wonderful aspects of the world. How can we enhance our life and theirs using positive psychology, knowledge and awareness?

Wouldn’t life be easier if we were given a manual on the human condition, an operating guide to human emotions including some sound, thought-out advice?

If I were to pass tomorrow, what would I leave to help and guide others? Could I reflect on my life and that of others in order to help my children and society?

These are some of the questions the author had in mind in developing Wisdom for My Son and Daughter. The author touches on many subjects of immense interest and sometimes controversy. Psychology, philosophy, science, politics and religion are all looked at in relation to life, with pragmatic reasoning.

This could be the book that gives you the life perspective you need, or a great gift for someone that is struggling in their life.
