The Start Of Another Day

This is a collection of interesting thoughts and opinions that might change your perspective on life. It is a uniquely written philosophy book that also tackles certain aspects of personal development through the changes that a young man experienced throughout one year. One of the more interesting topics of this book involve good and bad(free will), handling emotions, relationships with people, the true meaning of understanding and most importantly, your well-being. As an Algerian author influenced by western culture, I also incorporated some ideas that are quite common in my country giving you a chance to view certain aspects of the North African mentality and life style. This is my first take at writing a fully-fledged book so I would love to hear your views and criticism of it.
