This is a great book and easy to read. All readings in the book attempt to answer the question: Why are we here? Small concise answers from the world's most recongizable people. Lots of pictures as only Life can take. The whole idea? Make you think too.

This book greatly combines the art of photography, philosophy and real life stories. The world's most famous and respected people share their thoughts on the meaning of life; their words of wisdom are dispersed among excellent black and white photographs.

This is one of the reasons I like Amazon. Finding something like this would be very tough if not for the internet. I had been looking for it in bookstores for some time.

I like this book because of the topic, the short essays addressing it and the diversity of view points.

I like to read an essay or two and spend a few minutes reflecting upon them.

The photos are unique, and when paired with the comments by both the known and unknown, make for a book that will be reflected upon many a time and for many years.
