- Author: Smith, Seth AdamDate:Created2014Summary:
In this book, Seth Adam Smith expands on the philosophy behind his extraordinarily popular blog post "Marriage Isn't for You"—which received over 30 million hits and has been translated into over 20 languages—and shares how living for others can enrich every aspect of your life, just as it has his. With a mix of humor, candor and compassion, he reveals how, years before his marriage, his self-obsession led to a downward spiral of addiction and depression, culminating in a suicide attempt at the age of 20. Reflecting on the love and support he experienced in the aftermath, as well as on the lessons he learned from a difficult missionary stint in Russia, his time as a youth leader in the Arizona desert, his marriage and even a story his father read to him as a child, he shares his deep conviction that the only way you can find your life is to give it away to others.Original Publisher: San Francisco, Berrett-Koehler PublishersLanguage(s): English
