about this book

From Harold S. Kushner, author of the inspirational #1 bestseller When Bad Things Happen to Good People, comes a book that shows us how to be our best selves even when things don’t turn out as we had hoped.

Kushner turns to the experience of Moses to find the requisite lessons of strength and faith — the lesson that teach us how to overcome the disappointments that life inherently brings. From the examples of his remarkable resilience, we can learn how to meet all disappointments with faith in ourselves and the future, and how to respond to heartbreak with understanding rather than bitterness and despair. With Kushner’s signature warmth, Overcoming Life’s Disappointments is a book of spiritual wisdom — as practical as it is inspiring.


“No human relationship is without betrayal, irritation and annoyance, but Kushner makes clear that it’s what we do about such obstacles that matter.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Compassionate and wise, Rabbi Kushner is a master of the story that heals.”
—Deborah Tannen, author of You’re Wearing That?: Understanding Mothers and Daughters in Conversation

“An articulate, no-nonsense treatise.... A readably inspirational homily leavened with subtle humor.... Kushner's book can serve to fortify us in times of loss and frustration.”
The Jerusalem Report
