PREPOSTEROUS... CHALLENGING... STIMULATING... 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 become 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.... This is a compendium of knowledge and insight nonpareil-truly a masterwork! -Adrienne Juliano, member, Foundation for Mind-Being Research Arthur Jackson's book is the product of his 40-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. "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.
