In times of crisis, we all ask, "What's the point?". It turns out the answer to the question is hidden in plain sight and is connected to the fundamental purpose and very essence of our existence. There is only one point in living but it may not be what you think.
"Paul Koberg doesn't shy away from the tough questions. His answers to 'what is ego?', what is evil?' and 'is life simply the absence of death?' will fascinate and engage you. In today's times of crisis, Paul Koberg's book is a gift. Recommended for readers who appreciate a deep look into the deep questions of life." Reviewed by Stacie Haas for Readers' Favorite - 5 Stars

Reviewed by Vernita Naylor for Readers' Favorite - 5 Stars; "Suffering, abuse, and natural disasters are happening frequently all around us. The question that always comes up for everyone sooner or later is various aspects of 'why?' Why did this happen? When will it end? Is life worth living? In What's the Point? Finding Hope in a Crisis by Paul Kolberg, the reader will discover a glimmer of hope throughout the pages of this book. Using Paul's own story, the challenges that his child has gone through since birth well into adulthood have provided him with a different perspective on how he looks at life circumstances. When we read about the lives of others, there are times when we begin to appreciate our own journey. He breaks this book up into two parts - Happiness and Suffering - to allow the reader to thoroughly digest the material because it offers a lot of candid, in-depth moments of reflection. This book is ideal especially if you're currently dealing with some challenges in how life is evolving in today's society - from racism, ageism, classism to sexism. I enjoyed reading this book because at one time or another I've asked myself 'what's the point?' and here Paul offers some nuggets to chew on and to discover the answer for myself. It is during times of crisis when we see what we and others around us are made of. Just like during the COVID-19 pandemic, people's true colors are rearing its head above the veil. I am sure that, just like me, you too will see the essential elements of hope, love, and happiness in those dark corners of life. As the author states: "When the scales are removed from one's eyes, the world is at once staggeringly beautiful and staggeringly cruel like in The Matrix Reloaded when Neo and Trinity go into Machine City and temporarily break through the clouds. There is a glimpse of hope." My question to you is what does hope look like for you? Add this book to your library. Enjoy!"
