Stardust for the Saturnine
This book provides momentary stardust to the guy who feels like he's failed, his hopes dashed; the lady who thinks her life is a disappointment in an empty nest or that she didn't live up to her potential in her career; or anyone else who believes her or his road to money and glory has been forever blocked or even decimated.
This book was published in 2006, written by Rabbi Harold Kushner, also the author of the bestseller "When Bad Things Happen to Good People." Whereas the latter was so helpful to those who, like Rabbi Kushner, lost a loved one, this book is manna, like grains of gratitude for seeing and grasping all that it good within your life, even when it seems that all has gone so wrong. "Overcoming" is the book that others have since tried to write, like "The Up Side of Down: Why Failing Well is the Key to Success."
This is not an overly religious book or a book only for Jews because it's written by a Rabbi. This is a spiritual book, a positive book, that invokes the life and failures of Moses for its lessons.
If you know someone who has suffered a major life setback, lost a job, a house, a marriage, I cannot recommend to you highly enough that you give this book as a gift.
