When the author of the books shocks me...

About the Author: Steve Pavlina, actually sent his newly published book to all over the world. However, because of distance issues and the time that it takes for a book to reach overseas, he took the initiative to send the whole book in pdf format. This was amazing and it was the first time I encounter someone who takes such an initiative.

He was sent to prison at the age of 18. Since then, he has taken a big decision in his life. He was either going to keep living his life the same way, or choose to take hold of his life and find a new path for the remaining part of his life. He had to face "the wall" in order to wake up and see where he was going and think about his purpose in life.

He tried many things, after finishing his term in prison, and he put away what he had learned as a kid. He even put aside his religious convictions that he was not convinced of. He started from scratch. This led him to read thousands of books and do his own research and come to his own conclusions.

And now, he has written his own book to help all those who are trying to find the answers to the basic questions that someone asks in life.

Even though, this is a secular book, the author's message has helped many and even stopped someone from going on with the plan of suicide.
