Life Is a 4-Letter Word:
Laughing and Learning Through 40 Life Lessons
“Professor David Levy’s book is insightful, profound, funny, and thoroughly original. Meaning in life is everywhere, he reminds us, and whether it changes us profoundly or sails right over our heads, it’s nice to know it’s there.”
–Lewis Colick, screenwriter (October Sky and Ghosts of Mississippi)
“David Levy’s warm, funny and wise reflections on his life’s journey offers both comfort and hard-won advice for readers looking to improve their own lives.”
–Dennis Palumbo, therapist, screenwriter (My Favorite Year), and author (Daniel Rinaldi Mysteries)
Life Is a 4-Letter Word consists of 40 brief autobiographical essays, each of which culminates in a valuable “life lesson.” This is the kind of collection that everyday people will relate to.
Written in a style that is engaging, warm, humorous, and conversational, Dr. David Levy brings his insights and expertise as a veteran psychologist (and baby boomer) and shares a lifetime journey of personal reflections, growth, and wisdom.
Unlike many other self-help books, this book does not lecture, preach, or dispense advice. It’s not a “how to” book. Rather, as the stories unfold, readers are enticed to look at, reflect on, and find meaning in, their own lives…while laughing, wincing, and learning all along the way. In the same way that Richard Carlson's Don't Sweat the Small Stuff inspired a generation, so will Dr. David Levy's uplifting stories and wise advice.
