Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski M.D. has made a career of showing people that life is really not so tough -- if we know how to bounce off its bumps, lubricate its screeches, and salve its scrapes.

His first not as tough as you think book created a sensation. Sales were great. Chuckles were loud. And best of all -- lots of lives were improved. There were calls for more books that would show people how to make manageable molehills out of the daunting mountains of life. So here it is -- compliments of Rabbi Dr. Twerski’s lifetime of experience, sensitive wisdom, and prolific pen.

Time at home will be much better, more enjoyable, and more fruitful when you finish Twerski’s delightful little chapters; chapters like “Does everyone have problems?” “Memories Never Spoil” “Protective Walls Can Be a Prison” “But Where Do I Attach the Horses? ” “Be a Parent Not a Pal.”

Provocative? Yes. Helpful and practical? More than you can imagine!

Abraham J. Twerski, M.D. is a psychiatrist and an ordained rabbi. He is the founder of the Gateway Rehabilitation Center in Pittsburgh, a leading center for addiction treatment. He is Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Dr. Twerski is a prolific author, with 50 books to his credit, 4 of them in collaboration with Charles Schulz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip.
