About the Author
Dr. Abraham J. Twerski is a psychiatrist, an ordained rabbi, and founder and medical director of Gateway Rehabilitation Center in Pennsylvania. His books include When Do the Good Things Start? and Waking Up Just in Time, both inspired by Charles M. Schulz's Peanut comic strips; and Life's Too Short!, The Thin You Within You, and I'd Like To Call For Help But I Don't Know the Number.

"[Written] with the deft and experienced hand on which we have come to rely.... Dr. Twerski's kindness and respect for every 'diamond in the rough' and insight into the hidden insecurity of accomplished people is an inspiration."
--Dr. Wendy Mogel, clinical psychologist; author, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee: Using Jewish Teachings to Raise Self-Reliant Children

"As Christians today renew their bonds with the Jewish tradition, this volume provides a window to the love-centered spirituality of Judaism. Beautifully written and expressed in clear and compelling prose."
--John T. Pawlikowski, OSM, PhD, director, Catholic-Jewish Studies, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago

"Who knew that the basic principles of modern psychoanalysis were foreshadowed by the Torah and Jewish wisdom literature? Dr. Twerski knew ... and we are blessed with this amazing tour through both. A masterpiece by a master teacher, doctor, psychiatrist and guide, our twenty-first-century Maimonides."
--Dr. Ron Wolfson, author, The Seven Questions You're Asked in Heaven: Reviewing and Renewing Your Life on Earth; Fingerhut Professor of Education, American Jewish University; president, Synagogue 3000

"A treat for the spirit as well as the mind, the book that every life coach wished they had written to help you set goals and the way to get there. Introduces us to the nexus of modern psychiatry, deep spiritual learning, and insights from everyday life, aided by the gentle, accessible voice of the author."
--Dr. Kerry M. Olitzky, executive director, Jewish Outreach Institute; author, Life's Daily Blessings: Inspiring Reflections on Gratitude and Joy for Every Day, Based on Jewish Wisdom
