David Chernoff’s Manual For Living: Reality is a true manual on how to live one’s life to the fullest. Everyone has the sense that it is necessary to reinvent one’s self after a divorce or loss of employment, to mention a few. However, many people do not realize that it is possible to live a quality life at all times. People should be conscious of how they live their lives every day, and not just when everything goes wrong.

Manual For Living is a spiritual guide that is best read in smaller sections. In fact, even the author discourages reading it from cover to cover. Each chapter offers advice, questions for self reflection, answers and suggestions for fulfilling a life’s purpose in a spiritual way.

I found the book to work for me as it put everything in my life into a greater perspective. I found a quiet time and place to read the book on a regular basis. Manual For Living is a guide to finding balance and reconnecting with your spirit. Some people are likely to be uncomfortable with the exercises suggested in the book. Their lives are busy, and they feel that they don’t have the time, energy or reason to reconnect with themselves. But the author feels this exercise is essential to living a better life, and he is correct – it is mandatory to getting it right.

I have to admit that I was happier after reading Manual For Living. It showed me that there were simple moments of happiness that I had missed along the way. These were not necessarily milestones, but the common and everyday moments that are truly the most special, and which make up the best memories over time.

I’d recommend this book to everyone.
