"Thoughts on Life: Random and Otherwise by Jennifer Rego is a repository of good sense. It can successfully replace all the wisdom we would have found in quite a few books. From light hearted remarks about the demise of post offices to well considered opinions about the health care imbroglio, this book houses them all. That makes this book a worthy companion or a recommended daily read." Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite (Full review shortened due to length restrictions - readersfavorite.com/book-review/thoughts-on-life)
About the Author
After working for 14 years in the financial services sector, and obtaining her MBA, Jennifer uprooted and moved across the country from the East Coast to the Pacific Northwest where she's lived and worked for the past ten plus years. She is co-creator for the quirky and clever Columbia River Tunnel Permit sticker that decorates cars up and down the Columbia River and serves on the board of directors and as Treasurer for a local non-profit. In addition to her years of business experience, Jennifer is a also certified yoga instructor, Reiki Master, Advanced Polarity Practitioner, and a devoted student of Baba Shiva Rudra BalaYogi. She is constantly seeking ways to incorporate the principals discussed in her book into her daily life.

This book annoyed me. Based on the title, I was expecting the thoughts to be phrased as just that, thoughts (like "I feel" or "I've noticed"). Instead they come off as commands. It felt preachy and in at least one instance I felt like the author was contradicting herself a bit. She talks about being eco-conscious, preserving nature, and of how our rainforests are dying off, and then she tells us to send a letter, like snail mail (in a book that would be half the size it is now with different formatting). That's not very eco-conscious, and it's certainly not going to help to preserve the rainforests.
The advice wasn't necessarily bad, but I felt like the delivery left a lot to be desired. 2 out of 5 stars.
(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for giving it a review).
I hope the reader can take away a few gems, if not more, and become motivated to discuss these topics with friends and family. There is never any definitive on any topic, and these are merely my thoughts. What are yours? Would love to hear from you on your thoughts on life.
