This book contains fifty life lessons drawn from Elie Wiesel’s career as a writer. I hope that Elie’s word and my interpretation of them help provide some perspective in your own life. From reading this book it is my wish that you gain greater strength from within yourself and a deeper meaning from the everyday events in your life. I believe that the lessons in this book will help you through your ever day struggles and will bring new perspective to the lessons we must teach our future generations.It is the ultimate act of violence; to work your own will against another’s life is beyond reproach.It is important in life to take time to remember the people who have passed on, to remember the people who have influenced you in some way. It is important that the true narrative of our past be spread throughout humanity, but we must near worry about the few that deny reality as it happened.Really I love this book.
I was so inspired by Elie Weisel and couldn't wait to read more. I loved reading Karnowski's culmination of his thoughts in Elie Weisel's 50 Life Lessons from His Life and Work. This is a reference book to live by most certainly. Elie Wiesel: 50 Life Lessons from His Life and Work Everyone should read it!
I heard a lot about Elie Wiesel but have no time delving on his book Nights. After reading this book of Karnowski I have an idea of the true personality of Wiesel, he is a remarkable man and emphasizes the human failure to comprehend just how evil humans can be. Wiesel's primary goal in publishing Night is to prevent another Holocaust from happening. He emphasizes the need to be aware of evil in the world and to believe first hand accounts of it. Yes I agree with Wiesel belief that the true evil is Indifference, they are the 2 most destructive forces residing in human beings Apathy and Indifference. His writings are spontaneous he has the reason to doubt the goodness of man but doubt is not the lessons he taught in his writings.
