A Get-Real Book for Those Who Desire Lifetime Happiness

Review by Lauren S. Smith

Some of us seem to be in a constant state of despair - and it's no wonder - with the events of the nation and the world, happiness is a state of mind that seems to have disappeared forever. David Fox, M.D., learned how to live a great life the hard way and now he shares his experiences and medical expertise with others in his new book, Comfort, Healing and Joy: Secrets to Living a Magnificent Life.

Fox is a physician who has been caring for expectant women for years - so, it should come as no surprise that the actual writing process of Comfort, Healing and Joy took nine months from conception to realization. It's a skillfully written self-help book for people searching for their own paths to healing unhappiness and getting on with the business of life.

It's sometimes difficult to find happiness in a world filled with rampant unemployment, terrorist threats and constant reports of lack of integrity and honor in people we're supposed to trust and look up to. Each of us must find our own way to tune out the bad and concentrate on the good in life. Fox offers some great methods to do just that.

Comfort, Healing and Joy contains pearls of wisdom from a number of sources - some, conventional - some, not. There's psychological help, proven methods such as cognitive therapy and meditation and even some words from the wise world of Buddhism and great motivational literature.

Dr. Fox shares some of his past with readers - a past that wasn't easy for a young man - but, that he found a way to overcome and accomplish great things. He states in his book, "The emotional cards were stacked against me," and goes on to tell, how at age 17, he decided that he wasn't going to give in to the depressive mood that haunted him, but search for ways to overcome it.

The book that resulted from Fox's lifelong journey is one that he wrote with the unselfish motive of helping others who may be limited from a perceived notion of limitations, lack of self-esteem and feelings of unworthiness. Fox's writing skills lead you through ways of dealing with life's challenges and you'll find encouragement and inspiration when you read of his personal examples of triumph.

Fox defines depression as an awful, nasty illness and you'll read about how Fox confronted the darkest recesses of his soul and came out the conqueror. His journey will give readers hope that they, too, can catch some of those rays of happiness, despite whatever turmoil you may have to face on a daily basis.

Comfort, Healing and Joy: Secrets to Living a Magnificent Life, by David Fox, M.D., doesn't offer a quick fix to all your woes. Sometimes we all have to work at finding happiness. But, it's an insightful read about how we can all live a richer and more meaningful life.
