Are you tired of fake people or superficial relationships? Are you worried about being used or manipulated? Do you feel frustrated with all the positive news about how easy it is to be happy, even when the world is full of unhappy and depressed people? Are you drowning in a sea of sweet lies and psychology research findings? Are you hoping someone can rescue you with words of wisdom for living a deeper and more fulfilling life? If your answer to any of the above questions is affirmative, then A Time for Wisdom is the right book for you. Finally, here is a book which offers solid food rather than fluffy candy. Its fourfold path to wisdom based on knowledge, detachment, tranquility, and transcendence gets us out of our comfort zone of quick fixes and easy happiness and shows us how to live a happy and healthy life in a world full of suffering. This book is based on both psychological research and ancient wisdom from the East and West. Refreshingly, it even shares some truths from the Bible. In sum, this book shows us that the best possible life is a deep life based on the wisdom of the soul.
