I choose this book to try to better myself. To me, it was very uplifting and inspiring. Any one that wants to be a moral person, with values, would benefit from this book.

This short volume is packed with timeless wisdom that flies in the face of contemporary popular American ethos. Adler's arguments for the implicit worth of every human being, and eminent potential for redemption, are inspiring and written in prose accessible to a wide audience.

I found this to be a difficult read, mainly because of its structure. I have read a number of monographs before and found them to be dry, as this one was, for me, that is. It is preferable for me to read point-by-point, with breaks to "come up for air" and think about a particular point. I blame this on myself, not the author. I particularly liked the discussion of the Good Samaritan. The content seemed to be okay, just a difficult read, again, this is a conditioning thing for me.

Format: Paperback
I became interested in learning more about spirituality only recently and have been keen to further my knowledge on the subject. In this popular and classical piece of work Felix Adler produced an almost iconic look into the world of spirituality and enforcing the concept of detachment from the busy world as being important to gaining an idea of your true self. Spirituality goes hand in hand with morality and should never be taken for granted even in a modern world. Although very well written and full of concepts of great strength I did find the archaic and somewhat flowery language quite hard work but non the less it's one of the classics and shouldn't be missed. If you enjoy reading about spirituality I'd recommend The Suited Monk: A guide to life purpose and happiness.
