The Good Life

by Hugh Mackay

The Good Life explores this provacative question making a conclusion that may surprise many. The good life is not the sum of our security, wealth, status, postcode, career success and levels of happiness. Hugh Mackay examines the Golden Rule, help thy neighbour, through the prisms of religion, philosophy, politics, business and family life.

Argued with all the passion and intelligence we have come to expect from one of Australia’s most prolific and insightful authors, The Good Life is a book that will start conversations, ignite arguments and possibly even change the way we live our lives.
