    Eh it was ok. I thought it would be more eye opening and insightful. I enjoyed the scientific tie-in's since I can be pretty skeptical. The sheet randomness of the book was refreshing but not as impactful as I had hoped. All that being said, it's an easy and often entertaining read. ...

    I learned about myself that I am not one for spiritual sampling other than the sense of commonality in life truisms. I did find her experience at Burning Man interesting. ...

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. While Anjali Kumar is a lawyer, coming from the tech world, married to a doctor, and I'm just a middle aged women who has long wondered the same questions, I felt a kinship with her. I d...

    4.5. Such an enjoyable read. Several parts made me laugh until I was crying. And as others have said, now I don?t need to go to Burning Man. Thank you! ...

    After Anjali Kumar has a baby, she decides she needs greater spiritual understanding---mostly so she knows what to tell her daughter when her daughter asks: Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? What happens when we die? Is there a God? So Kumar goes on a quest for ans...

    I absolutely adored this book. Anjali?s writing style is refreshingly funny and relatable. Her story is filled with profound insights on the human condition and the insecurities we all encounter on this beautiful blue ball in space. I admittedly ?lost it? and felt tears on my fac...

    Anjali Kumar is a lawyer who is used to having all the answers. After she had a daughter, Anjali realized she knew very little about the big questions: why are we here? What is it all about? Is there a God? "In 2010, when my daughter Zia was born, I decided that I needed to find God...

    Kinda fun. Hard for me to relate to an upper middle class corporate lawyer who knows people who wear fancy clothes and know fancy people and who can get on jets and fly all over the place. Kinda fun. ...

    As a former western philosophy professor who has also done her share of mystical seeking, this book spoke to me! I enjoyed hearing Kumar, who at the time was head counsel for Google, talk about her attempts to find a connection to something greater. Her account of suffering on a dank y...

    This book was more of a memoir of a religious pursuit of happiness. I personally did not care for it, I expected it to be told more like a story rather than an itinerary of the authors adventures in finding her way. It was well written, just not in a style I personally prefer. If you l...

    I enjoyed this book thoroughly. I lived vicariously through her journey for the meaning of life. I have always been curious about many of the ?off the beaten path? religions she experienced, so this was a great way to get the ?inside? scoop on the religions with candid and humo...
