The Ten Commandments: Still the Best Moral CodeThey are the foundation stones of Western Civilization. Given their staggering importance, and certainly our educational and religious institutions, you would think that all societies, would be intent on studying them closely. Our schools ignore them and our churches and synagogues take them for granted.
For people who have thought little about the Ten Commandments, as well as for those who have a sophisticated understanding of them, it will be a revelation. That's a lot to ask of a little book, but the only thing that's little here is the length. Sadly, this is not the case. The ideas are very big. But here's a simple test: who among us can even name all of the ten commandments? and even among those who can name them, this book will strengthen it; if you are agnostic it will force you to rethink your doubts; if you're atheist, how many can explain them in a way that makes sense to the modern eye and ear?If you are a person of faith, it will test your convictions.
These words changed the world when they were first presented at Mt. The most important words ever written are the Ten Commandments. Sinai to israelites, and they are changing it now.

Happiness Is a Serious Problem: A Human Nature Repair ManualIn this unique blend of self-help and moral philosophy, perfect for fans of Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project or Dan Harris’ 10% Happier, talk-radio host Dennis Prager shows us that happiness isn’t just a value—it’s a moral obligation. Achieving that happiness won't be easy, though: to Prager, it requires a continuing process of counting your blessings and giving up any expectations that life is supposed to be wonderful.
When you ask people about their most cherished values, “happiness” is always at the top of the list. In this enduring happiness manifesto, prager examines how happiness not only makes us better people, but has an effect on the lives of everyone around us—providing them with a positive environment in which to thrive and be happy themselves.
If you're willing to put some thought into achieving a happier outlook, you will find plenty to mull over in Happiness Is a Serious Problem. . A poor man who can make himself satisfied with his portion will be happier than a wealthy man who does not allow himself to be satisfied. Prager echoes other political commentators in complaining that too many people today see themselves as victims; he submits that the only way to achieve your desires is to take responsibility for your life rather than blaming others.
Can we decide to be satisfied with what we have?" he asks.
