Tom Shadyac’s view of what we need to keep our world from continuing on its downward spiral would have carried more gravitas he had said it better and with more convincing clarity.
-NY Journal of Books

Synopsis

Just about everything today comes with an operating manual—from your computer to your car, from your cell phone to your iPad. Is it possible that Life comes with an operating manual as well? That’s the simple but powerful premise of Tom Shadyac’s inspiring and provocative first book. Written as a series of essays and dialogues, we are invited into a conversation that is both challenging and empowering. The question now is, can we discern what is written inside this operating manual and garner the courage to live in accordance with its precepts?
