As reviewed by New York Times best-selling author Ellen Tanner Marsh

How can we make the best use of our limited time on earth and find true

fulfillment? Author James C Lin, M.D., a board-certified urologist, knows that life

is more complex and complicated than ever before, but he also knows that there

are new pathways to a better way of living. Using real life scenarios and personal

anecdotes, Lin examines how a more rewarding and satisfying existence can be

easily achieved. Part tour guide and part cheerleader, Lin shows reader how they

can be more in control of their destinies by setting themselves on the road t

getting what they really desire.

Overcoming barriers against self-improvement is easier than you think,

insists Lin, who suggest that anyone can feel better, live longer, and truly understand the purpose of life by simple reconnecting to the information that is buried inside all of us. Lin also explores why a sense of need is the driving force of living and why it can actually be beneficial in life to feel miserable at times. He shows how to develop your own personalized skill for getting along in life, much to the benefit of yourself, your family, and the world at large. From health care to parenting to marriage and to work. Lin addresses all aspects of human life and suggests that perfection is not the answer to happiness, but learning to perfect is.

Anyone can return to the driver's seat of his or her life, and Lin's wise and warmly written book can act as an invaluable roadmap to genuine happiness.


A controlled, realistic, happy can be easily fulfilled first by recognizing the truth and facts of life and secondly by materializing what you can do but not at the expense of others' loss.

The style of presentation is to stress the reality of life with no words of hype catchwords such as instant, guaranty, free, perfect, best, cure, etc.
