Certainly makes one think.,

This review is from: Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, A Young Man and Life's Greatest Lesson (Hardcover)
This book is a best seller and continues to stay on the best seller list because in my opinion most people down deep understand the truth of Morrie's basic philosophy that people living exclusively in a materialistic world generally do so to replace what they feel is missing from their lives even though they may not be consciously aware, at the moment, of what precisely is "missing." What is missing ? I found part of this answer in a general sense in this book. I found even more precise and concrete answers in the book An Encounter With A Prophet. I highly recommend both of these books to anyone seeking to find out why they seem to continue to feel something is missing from life.

Agreed- its a great book that gets you focused on the important things in life. Along the same lines, found "Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World" uselful as well.

I didn't read An Encounter with a Prophet or Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World from checking them out, I think better recommendations would be Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World (Random House Reader's Circle) and I Walked to the Moon and Almost Everybody Waved: The Curiously Inspiring Adventures of a Free Spirit Who Changed Lives (I reviewed both at their Amazon pages). Both are filled with stories that are inspiring as opposed to philosophizing [which rarely is inspirational in the same way].
