In today's interconnected, technology-driven world, many are suffering from information overload and are re-thinking the consequences of "over-sharing". The Secret Life is a helpful guide to leading a quietly powerful life – one that can lead to greater personal effectiveness, satisfaction, and success. The concepts that originated with Maimonides – one of history's greatest philosophers – demonstrate the benefits of living a more private life. The result is an antidote to the depression, finger-pointing, divisiveness, unhappiness, and inefficiency that many of us would like to change in ourselves and in the world. Using stories drawn from the world of the rich and famous and of the everyday heroes that live in every community, from film and fiction, from history, and from the author's own experiences, this book will demonstrate powerful life lessons inspired by the teachings of Maimonides that anyone can start using immediately to become more effective and happy in their own lives.
