I was very impressed with this book and the author's ability to grasp the difference between essence and existence - and bring it to readers who may not have her depth of knowledge.
Rachel Madorsky is truly a Renaissance Woman with the extraordinary ability to motivate readers to be introspective, which is a key to understanding who and what we are, and what we can achieve. Madorsky's knowledge of history, philosophy, psychology, and theology and various belief systems, is obvious in her writing - and the concepts she puts forth will undoubtedly help her readers set their own goals and reach new heights of self-understanding.
I believe all people who are open to enhancing their self-awareness and to considering new ideas should read this book. Even for those who might be skeptical about some of the author's assertions in this book, and who might not be comfortable with certain of her approaches, Madorsky is still a very important thinker who deserves our consideration.
