Lessons for living

what only adversity can teach you
Phil Stutz
Book - 2023

"There are issues, and there are issues-love, loss, success, failure, hope, regret, life, death. How can we even begin to think clearly about dilemmas so universally confounding? Phil Stutz has spent his life pondering the big challenges that we all face, and this profound book puts the conclusions he's reached at your fingertips. Stutz has been writing these remarkably insightful short essays since the late 1990s, and they are collected here for the first time, along with new insights specific to the unique challenges of today. Each one will change the way you think, but taken all together, this book becomes something far more than the sum of its parts, a compendium of human experience and knowledge that will reframe your worldview. There are hard truths here-the acknowledgment that life is full of pain and not a single one of us is special enough to escape it-but we need to understand and accept them in order to realize our full potential"--
