Style/ Plot – ​Rabbi Cohen writes beautifully about how readers can add value to their lives, improve relationships with others and live a life that’s meaningful.

As he is Jewish (duh! He is a Rabbi), he writes from his perspective as a Jew and introduces the reader to what he terms as “Elijah moments” which involves seizing an opportunity to be generous within and beyond our sphere of influence.

Favourite Quote – ​The first step on your journey to reverse engineering your life is to develop a prototype. Reflect on how you want to be remembered. The question, ‘what will they say about you when you’re gone?’ is the trigger to awaken your inner dreams and aspirations.

Recommendation – ​Many of us are at a point in our lives when we look back at what we have done and we we did more. This book caters to that desire to be and do more than you are currently with regard to kindness and giving back to society.
