The Meaning Of Life by Bradley Trevor Greive was first published in 2001. Although the book has over 100 pages, it is more or less a picture book. That is, each page has large pictures and just a few words. The book will take you 10-15 minutes to read, even with stopping to admire the pictures. Below are a few good lines from the book.
The only theme that resonates throughout the numerous popular life theories is love. Love, in all its fragile forms, is the one powerful, enduring force that brings real meaning to our everyday lives. If you ask the big questions and listen carefully to your heart, you will eventually hear destiny call you. When you get the most out of your life, savoring every last drop, it will transform everything about you from ordinary to extraordinary.
With that said, even though the book was a short read, midway through the book it became rather repetitive. That is, it felt as if it fell into the cycle of fail->keep going<=>funny animal pictures, repeat. So, if you like animals, short reads, or cat videos, this may be the book for you.
According to the book, the author also supports the Taronga Foundation. So, check them out if you have time.
