An enjoyable read.
The book may be a little slow for some. It's about a middle aged man who discovers that he wants more out of life than just money and beating the stock market. He wants to develop a relationship with his son who he's never got to know since his divorce when the child was about four years old. He wants to interact with people. It takes a near heart attack to make him realize these things.
He goes on to form new friendships with interesting characters: an Indian donut shop owner, an actor, an author, a woman that he meets in the grocery store. In the same vein, he becomes more altruistic. Sometimes it is good to read a book that reminds us that life is basically about other people and how we interact with them, it's not just about one's own world!
Overall, I think the book was not appropriately titled, because the book won't save your life but it is still worth a read. If you just want to relax and see life from another person's perspective, try this.
