Book Review: The Why Cafe?

So take the focus off food and libation and where do I end up? Doing a great deal of self reflection, yoga and reading! So far my cleanse has made it to day 7 and I have had some ups and downs but nothing extreme or all that bad. I feel light and rested for the most part. While slightly bored in the physical consumption department, my brain seems to be full of flavorful sustenance made so by my latest read, The Why Cafe by John P. Strelecky. This is a simple, short read, chalked full of great content and food for the conscience.The book is a fictional account of a very profound journey of a man finding his "Purpose For Existence," something I believe everyone in modern day society could benefit from. Through the course of the book the man, who happens to be lost on his way to get away and "recharge his batteries," is asked to ponder three thought provoking and life changing questions. As I breezed through all 49 pages, I found myself unconsciously becoming the main character and really going through these questions in my own head. The cool part is there is no crazy plot, very little character description, and virtually NO action involved in this book and yet it is hard to put down. And now that I am finished I am having a hard time getting the questions out of my own head, determined to answer them to the best of my ability. This is definitely a book I feel I will make my children read during their teenage years but would recommend for anyone in the mood for some self-reflection.
