Why are we here? What is the meaning of existence? What truly matters the most in life? We have all felt the looming presence of these questions, but it’s never easy to examine our life’s path and its meaning. To begin finding answers, we must start by exploring our own internal ideals, values, and beliefs. Taking a fresh look at the concept of happiness, James Hollis encourages you to learn to tolerate ambiguity, embrace growth over security, engage spiritual crisis, and acknowledge the shadow of mortality. Providing inspiring wisdom and personal reflections to address our deepest worries, What Matters Most will help you get to the heart of the matter, to discover what it means to truly live life to its fullest, most meaningful state—as fully engaged citizens of the world—and to risk being who you really are.

Healing, satisfaction, and meaning only come when we identify what feeds our soul . . . says therapist and writer Hollis in this thoughtful program. The elegance and poetry in this writing will frustrate listeners looking for something more direct or colloquial. Literature lovers, on the other hand, will devour the writer's philosophical tone and the many quotes from authors like Pascal and Dylan Thomas. Narrator Jim Bond's academic tone helps to keep the production anchored to the author's largely intellectual approach. Yet Bond is so comfortable with this kind of material that he makes it come alive with humanity and clarity. This well-performed essay is sure to influence those who warm up to its important message.
