“Temes employs the same probing approach he used in The Just War to explore
the best way to live a meaningful life…. Drawing on sources as diverse as
Aristotle and I.B. Singer's "Gimpel the Fool," as well as men and women who
make a difference today, Temes argues for…‘helping others look good in their
own eyes and finding strength and happiness in yourself by helping others
feel stronger and happier’… [Temes] offers a text that probes deeply and,
happily, counters the idea that self-help is only about self-advancement.”
