it said the book is in good condition. Did not say anything about the written stuff on it. I would not order from this dealer again.
My quibble with Marinoff in this work is his lack of references. At times he makes claims and draws conclusions that require referencing whichever source he draws from, since he uses concepts and principles from other disciplines, like evolution and psychology. Is conditional fatherly love really the kind of love that a child needs (in addition to unconditional motherly love)? I have never heard of this position on parenting and would have liked to see references to the original sources.
In each chapter, the author explains how using philosophy can help you to answer these questions and apply them to your life in order to make positive changes within. He gives readers a new way to look at certain situations, like just because you are offended by someone, does not mean that any harm has been caused to you. You have the power to accept the offense or let it go. The author also gives examples of real-life situations taken from clients of his philosophical counseling practice. He applies what he has taught in each chapter to an event that we can understand more fully and how the process of using philosophy really can change your life.
