Extraordinary wisdom to help you understand yourself, lead your life, and deal with other people.
 As human beings, we have instincts for both good and evil, conscious and unconscious. To rectify ourselvesto live spiritually and properlyinvolves getting a handle on these impulses.
from the Introduction
In this special book of practical wisdom, Dr. Abraham J. Twerski draws from his extensive professional experience as a psychiatrist and spiritual counselor, a life-long student of Jewish wisdom texts, and his personal experience as a son of a wise Chassidic rabbi to give us practical lessons for life that we can put to day-to-day use in dealing with ourselves and others.
In a presentation as warm and witty as it is profound, Dr. Twerski combines lively anecdotes, personal musings, and insights and wisdom from sources ranging from Freud to the great Talmudic and Torah scholars throughout the ages. And with deep compassion and refreshing candor, he shows how these wisdom teachings can guide us in all moments of our lives, whatever our faith tradition.

Abraham J. Twerski, MD, a psychiatrist, rabbi, and frequent lecturer on a broad range of topics including spirituality and self-esteem, is author of over fifty books, including Happiness and the Human Spirit: The Spirituality of Becoming the Best You Can Be, A Formula for Proper Living: Practical Lessons from Life and Torah (both Jewish Lights), Waking Up Just in Time, The Spiritual Self, and Getting Up When Youre Down. He is the founder and medical director emeritus of Gateway Rehabilitation Center.
