Format: Hardcover
The Answer is a beautiful gem of a book. Full of ancient and modern wisdom, from The Dalai Lama to Burt Bacharach, Jennifer Krause shows us there is inspiration in all things. The Answer taps into our modern anxiety that we want to be all things at all times and feel like failures most of the time. Ms. Krause infuses The Answer with humor and fascinating facts and quotes, making this "self-help" book just plain fun to read. However, it gets under your skin, makes you realise that one life-pattern does not fit all, that each of us has a special and unique place in this world, that sometimes it's okay to just be you. Unlike other self-help titles, this one does not give advice as to "how to get everything one wants in 30 days or less" format. It says to us all, you are the wisest person you know, listen to your inner self and you will know what to do. I felt very empowered by "The Answer".

We need more books and more citizens like Rabbi Krause. Every day we watch our leaders, friends and selves stumble because the tough questions haven't been asked. Krause is aware that any answer is determined by the question. Oddly this has often been overlooked by those claiming to offer guidance. The Answer is thus not self-help, but wisdom literature, an ancient genre deserving of space on every bookshelf.
