about

A straight from the shoulder look at life in which the author asks some awkward questions that we might prefer to swat away like an annoying fly. Questions like: Who am I? What is this life really about? What is the mind? Why do we resist change? These are the questions we lock away in a tall tower like some inconvenient relative who’s ‘lost her marbles’ and become an embarrassment to the family. Perhaps you’ve been asking ‘comfortable’ questions and avoiding the hard-hitting ones, preferring to hide away from them and pretending that they don’t exist. We hope that someone, somewhere, will put it all right for us. They won’t!

'On The Other Hand' book is not for the faint of heart as it brings you face to face with yourself … but not the one you see when you look in the mirror. If you’ve locked yourself up in protective custody and thrown away the key, this book could well pick the lock and let you out again. There’s something wonderful waiting to be discovered if we care to take a look. If you’re prepared to be honest when thinking about the questions raised in this book and to be your own harshest critic, then pop over to the cash desk or place it in your basket online and, go for it. You’re not alone and help is always available … far closer than you can imagine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from brilliant Read!! Books which give something to think are always something which I enjoy reading. After reading “Just around the bend”, although it was the second book, I was sure “On the other hand” would be amazing. And the book not only kept up with the expectations, but it also surpassed it. Renee challenges the way you think about daily activities. It is a fresh outlook to various things happening around us which we ignore most of the times. Right from the catchy titles of the chapters to the absorbing matter written in all the chapters, The book goes from very light subjects like Open mindedness and interaction to very heavy topics like Fear of Dying and Who am I? in a very smooth flow. The language is kept very simple for anyone to understand. The words touch your mind in a spark kind of way. The struggles Renee has yet again created a brilliant book filled with creative thoughts about our lives. I hope for everyone to read it and enjoy the thought process that happen with the book. 5 stars for the complete package

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth a read If you are looking for answers to the questions in this book you will be disappointed; there are no `answer pages' at the back. Rather, the author invites you to think about life by taking another look at it. This is not an easy-street-read pandering to the masses. The overriding theme of this book is that we are responsible for ourselves and the things that happen to us; not a popular concept in this `there, there' placating world where we point the finger everywhere but at ourselves. This book points no fingers but looks at the human race, as a whole. With that thought in mind the book asks: "Why do we do these things?" The book "... explores these facets with some bold and frank questions that can make for uncomfortable reading". And states: "Be prepared ... old beliefs are hard to eliminate and to let go of. I write nothing you have to believe. I ask you to believe nothing. I do try to show you that Humanity created this world and only Humanity can dismantle it". If you are prepared or want to make changes to your life then I recommend this work. By the time you are done reading it you may have a whole new perspective on the world we all have to live in.
