"In Pursuit of Joy is one of the most compelling books I have read in the last ten years. Gary Green tells his own deeply moving story of a journey from depression and alcohol problems to a life of peace with himself and the world. Although this is one man's story, it applies to any of us who have ever felt alone with our problems, that we are unlovable in some way, and that there is no way out of the maze. Mr. Green shares the different paths that eventually led him out of his own maze, ranging from the philosophical to the psychological to the spiritual, never preaching, but always inviting people to find their own way to lead a richer, more joyful life. This book speaks directly to the heart of the matter and, uniquely, to the heart of the reader. If Mr. Green, a self-described 'regular guy,' can recover his life, maybe we all can."
