Doing Life: A Pragmatist Manifesto

This is a book about how and why people “do life” as they do. It is as well a book about how people could or should think about doing life for the benefit of their own well-being and that of the people they associate with.

It is a book about how our feelings and our thinking interfere with how we could be doing the life we dream of. It is a book about the mistakes we make in doing life, and how we could avoid those mistakes.

It is a book about what causes us to be the way we are. It is a book about why we often can’t do life as we wish. It is about the personal dragons that stand in our way. And it is about how the real world outside of us can frequently frustrate even our best intentions.

It is about ramping up for doing life, and then trying to understand why our lives so often turn out in ways we had neither anticipated nor desired. It is about how getting involved with others means our lives are forever altered. It is about why that could be a good thing or a bad thing, and how to best figure that out in advance.

It is a book about frustration and regret, about pleasure and pain. It is about participating in life’s trials and tribulations by choice.

It is the kind of book you can use to maximize your choices about doing life as you would have it done, and about mastering the influences of what happens in the world around you.

It is about undoing the life you have in order to e able to do life the way it should be done.
