I’m really surprised by the fascinating ideas in this book. It could help us to live a life full of meaning by tackling the questions of life in plain terms with humor and interest. In A Wonderful Life, Martela told us a lot of anecdotes, history, thoughtfulness, perspective, and entertaining discourse from the expert view of psychology, philosophy and literature.

A WONDERFUL LIFE: Insights for Finding a Meaningful Existence
by Frank Martela
Harper Design, March 2020, 200 pp.

Meaning in Life Explained. Why Happiness is Not Enough for a Life Worth Living

Is happiness a worthy goal? What is the foundation for meaning in a secular society? Is life an existential void?

Frank Martela answers these questions and more in a relaxed, conversational tone and with a wry sense of humor, placing some of life’s greatest philosophical concerns and quandaries into a modern-day context. Martela quickly and concisely gets to the heart of the matter – your place in the world and how to find meaning in life – yet the emphasis here is on what we do with the life we have and how we can make it more meaningful.

The search for life’s meaning is perhaps the most important quest we can undertake. And for any quest, it’s essential to have a guide. Philosophically probing yet eminently readable, A Wonderful Life is a book you can refer to again and again on your journey toward purpose.
