5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimately encouraging and very sobering, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've always admired Jimmy Carter without knowing much about him. What is great about this book, is that it is a true call to action. He doesn't just babble about Christian principles. He lives them as he understands them. I am an ardent humanist and have no problem with Carter's Christianity. He dares to go against powerful forces that would keep women down forever, disallow birth control or any decent, humanistic medical practice regarding human sexuality. It was so powerful, and so upsetting, that I was depressed for a few days after reading it. On the other hand, he and his working partners have saved the lives of countless people and helped to make life worth living for them. He also turns a very bright light on anti-progressive forces at work in America against women's rights as employees and as sexual beings apart from conventional stereotypes; and on the violence that they suffer in their work and family lives in the western world. I hope this encourages you to choose to read this book and to be more certain in your progressive attitudes and to become more active in promoting progressive social policies.

5.0 out of 5 stars best comedy, 27 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Analyze That [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
I could watch this film dozens of times and still laugh. Billie Crystal does the drama really convincingly (as well as the comedy, of course) and De Niro is a great comedian as well as dramatic actor. What a stunning combination of personalities. I can't explain why it makes me laugh so much each time see it. I wouldn't want to analyze it to death (LOL).

Crystal's edgy, at times insecure portrait of the psychiatrist is touching as well as expressing the soul of kindness and caring and De Niro's depiction of the softening mob boss who simply wants to progress to a peaceful life and leave criminality behind is theatre at its best--catharsis and transformation. I can't say enough good things. Laughter heals the soul. So buy it already!

2.0 out of 5 stars interesting and disappointing, 14 Sept. 2010
I bought this book expecting a somewhat more daring and broad-thinking synopsis of the implications of Ms. Langer's work. What followed were luke-warm, tentative suggestions about going against the mind-set of aging, keeping positive, etc. A somewhat trite, lengthy aphorism not reflective of the possible contribution that she could make given the rare privilege of her position and education. C'est la vie. Perhaps it's for someone else to tackle these ideas in a more galvanizing, helpful fashion. It's a really exciting idea to keep young in body and spirit, go against the tide of conditioned thinking and the depression and isolation that is predicted for people who fail to resist the tide, but there is little help here.
