This is the first work written by Harold Kushner. I had heard of "Living a Life That Matters" and was looking forward to reading it. I would have to say that I appreciated the way that Rabbi Kushner used examples from the Bible, the Torah, and his conversations with people to emphasize points throughout the book.

I found him to be honest, to the point, yet not condemning, preachy, or self-righteous. I also greatly appreciated his sense of humor. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who had questions about our need to matter. Hopefully, they would find the author as sympathetic and warm as other readers. And more importantly, may they have the courage to step out of their comfort zone and see what they have to offer another human being and maybe in the process find out a little more about themselves.
