About Douglas Abrams, the author did a magnificent job in shaping the essence of these men in a book, their knowledge, their moral and spiritual wealth, their joys, their jokes, anyway. As for writing, sometimes the author usually explains things that do not need to be explained, sometimes it is often repetitive and sometimes seems to fill holes with poems instead of maintaining the rhythm that the narrative already carried.
The Book of Joy is a balm for the soul, the introspection of two great men to find what they mean for them inherent themes to humanity. It is a guide on how it is possible to maintain a life of compassion and generosity. It is a relevant and uplifting book.
