Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With an easygoing narration, George Newbern delivers the keys to living an authentic and intentional life. In this examination of the teachings of the medieval philosopher Maimonides, we see the far-reaching benefits of applying his lessons to our contemporary lives filled with social media. Newbern’s affable voice and conversational pace mirror the authors’ positive message and sincere tone as he reveals Maimonides’ belief that one achieves fulfillment by doing good while remaining anonymous. With the ego in check, one develops the self-discipline to do the humblest of acts for one’s growth, rather than for recognition. This, in turn, leads to further self-development, resulting in more integrity, honesty, and resilience. Newbern’s presentation captures the benefits to be found in conscious living and discovering your best self. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
