To Touch and Be Touched : Including Three Life Questions You Should Answer "Yes"
A memoir is most often a slice of life; overcoming adversity, finding faith, someone famous sharing intimacies, or taking the reader on the adventure of a lifetime. To Touch and Be Touched is different. There is no great adversity, faith isn't found, the author isn't famous and the journey is not a magnificent adventure. Instead, this memoir explores how an ordinary person, living an ordinary life, discovers the essence of what it is to be human. The memoir is the backstory to Brown's earlier book, Personal Wisdom: Making Sense of You, Others, and the Meaning of Life. Armed with a doctorate in psychology, Brown spent forty years figuring out the best reasons to get out of bed in the morning. Early readers have said: "A gentle exploration of profound ideas," "hidden under unassuming titles, he assembles crisp bits of wisdom," and "Bob has a great way to take the common experiences that we all share and milk uncommon insights." This book is right for anyone seeking a better understanding of what it is to be human and to make the most of the gift of life.show more
