More about Seven Ways of Looking at Pointless Suffering:

“Another great merit of Samuelson's insightful, informative and deeply humane book is that it is a genuine pleasure to read. Herein lies a final challenge to the reader: after luxuriating in his reflections, we must close the book and return to daily life with renewed determination and courage to apply its lessons.” – Times Higher Education, Book of the Week
