   easy Insightful reading
This is a very well written book, containing new thoughts and clear explanations for the topic, it truly did, as the title suggests. It helped make sense of the most difficult moments in life.
   Answers to one of Philosophy's most enigmatic questions
I did not expect to find a satisfying answer to the problem of suffering... But golly, I did. I now see things from an entirely new angle. I hope that when my turn comes to suffer, I can remember what I read here and bear things more serenely and peacefully.
   A profound book on suffering that will help you see it in a new, fuller way
Great scholarly work, rich with insights on suffering from many different disciplines. There is truly meaning in suffering, no matter what. Read this book and give it to anyone who may need depth, encouragement, hope and added faith in the face of difficult suffering. Amazing talent at work to bring together ideas, insights and examples from across the spectrum of life that there is hope after all and even blessing.
   Full of wisdom and help. Great resource.
Very helpful and calming.
   It's an honest book. It doesn't try to answer what is unanswerable but gives insight.
I thought it '' a thoughtful non-dogmatic and thorough approach to understanding why we experience suffering.
   not successful for me
Some of it is helpful other parts, I could argue with the author about his twisting things so much. I was left with the feeling that either psychological acrobatics can 't explain it. At the end, I felt frustrated and annoyed. But that's just me ; I hope other readers are more helpful than mine.
   I greatly enjoy this book
I read 8 other books on suffering before this one, not including parts of other books. I greatly enjoy this book ''. And perhaps Chapter 2 helped me appreciate Chapter 3 onwards. This demonstrates one of the author's points that suffering adds good value to what is appreciative. It is one of those who can not put it down reads. On the suffering!
