San Jose, CA, May 04, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published How to Live the Good Life: A User's Guide for Modern Humans by Arthur Jackson. The author's most recent book to date is a 6.14 x 9.21 paperback in the religious philosophy category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/howtolivethegoodlife was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
A note of caution: This is not an easy read. Nor is it for the detached, uninvolved person. The author invites readers to accompany him on a journey of self-discovery and provides a road map to boot, rarely presented in such a clear and comprehensive way.
The breadth and depth of Arthur Jackson’s knowledge and experience becomes obvious early on as he presents a plethora of views from well-known and lesser-known philosophers, psychiatrists, psychologists, mathematicians, and others who influenced modern Western ideologies. Arthur Jackson’s book is the product of his forty year struggle to find a naturalistic alternative to traditional folk religions (like Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism) capable of providing comparable emotional support. This effort led to what is now recognized as a Science of Religion and Ethics -- a religion of wisdom providing guidance to any person interested in making moral and ethical choices.
Jackson writes, “I believe that until a concrete science of religion and ethics exists and organizations to apply its findings, humanity will continue to struggle to create these things.”
How to Live the Good Life is a fascinating and eye-opening guide aimed at helping people experience more joy and achieving their full, positive potential.
“This is a compendium of knowledge and insight nonpareil—truly a masterwork!”
—Adrienne Juliano, member, Foundation for Mind-Being Research
