The 7: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life

I’m usually am skeptical of any books that claim they will “change my life”, let alone one that has a handful of “steps”. Enter Glenn Beck and Keith Ablow, M.D. and their new collaboration, The 7: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life. I knew much of Glenn Beck’s story before reading the book…his alcoholism and drug abuse, his significant rise and fall in broadcasting, his marriages, children, his faith.  There wasn’t much “news” in the book, but I found that the format (a chapter by Glenn and then a chapter by Dr. Ablow on the same “wonder”) very effective at presenting a psychological premise (Dr. Ablow’s chapter) along with an illustration (Glenn’s chapter about his life).

“…one human being’s intensely personal tests and triumphs can be harnessed to the good of countless others” writes Keith Ablow.  He is correct, and that’s what this book attempts to do.

The 7 “Wonders” are:

  • Courage
  • Faith
  • Truth
  • Compassion
  • Friendship
  • Family
  • Common Sense

If you’re in a struggle in your life…if you’re facing illness, substance abuse, broken relationships, low self-esteem or just want to know if your life has a purpose…this book might just help.  It isn’t rocket science, but it spoke to me.  Dr. Ablow says “there are no coincidences”.  As a Christian, I believe that and I believe that this book was something that came along at the appointed time for an appointed reason.  You might find that too.
