Review: Rabbi Rami Guide to Forgiveness: Roadside Assistance for the Spiritual Traveler

Most books on ethics and morality view forgiveness as a way to escape suffering, as if anger or hatred were something to brush off with the breezy words “I forgive you.” Rabbi Rami sees forgiveness differently because he understands the trickster nature of the self. In his Guide to Forgiveness, he’ll help you to stop identifying with the slights and grudges borne against you so that forgiveness can begin to happen naturally. 

Received for review.

This slim little volume packed quite a punch.  While the book is written bu a Rabbi you don't need to be Jewish to benefit from its wisdom.

The author has a great tone and reading it makes it feel like you're having a conversation in his living room, rather than being lectured to by some guru, the way some books of this type come across.  He truly is a breath of fresh air in the genre.

The messages are valuable and can be applied to many different circumstances so if you're looking into the whole forgiveness thing, for whatever reason, give this a try.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
