Yasher Echad EL writes Divine- Simplicity -Day -3Unity- in -The- Community is an invaluable asset. "We are not fully aware and comprehensive of life; as the creator, God envisioned for us. "He further emphasizes that the first law of nature is divine oneness. If we do as the first commandment states, then all the other laws would respond and gravitate with our actions. He further references the bible many times, for instance, the ten commandments.

Yasher emphasizes the basis of community and unity of its members, which is family. "parenting does not come with instructions. Life lessons come in different formats; spiritual, physical, and mental. Choose logic over emotions. "He doesn't forget to emphasize the importance of effective communication, which differs since each family is unique. In addition to that, strong relationships are built by doing simple tasks; for instance, sharing a meal, hugs and kisses, play a game, work out together, enjoy the family activity, and asking about their day. Another role of a parent in a child's life is to inspire confidence by commenting on their qualities and achievements.

Contrary to that, Yasher brings out the factors influencing divine simplicity, for instance, social media, moves, globalization, male-to-female transformation, money and fame, and cloning. He states that if one were to do evil in exchange for money or fame, they could confidently choose to do it. Movies, news, and radio broadcast are nowadays designed to alter people's minds. By changing people's minds, you modify and control their emotions and perceptions, leading to managing their beliefs. He pinpoints that the same things the youths are bashed from doing are the same stuff people blasphemy their neighbor of participating in "gossip and lying" are the same theings people worship celebrities for doing.

I liked Yasher's book because it brought out the aspect of unity in the community by laying a foundation on the family perspective. Furthermore, divine simplicity has been well expounded by the referencing of the bible.

On the other hand, I was not impressed by several editing errors in the book, which made it seem unprofessionally edited. There was a lot of repetition, especially in the book's introduction, specifically on "dedication". I, therefore, rate the book 2 out of 4 stars.

Lastly, I recommend this book for parents due to its detailed and up to the point discussion on parenting and family, marriage counselors, religious leaders, and all those who like to know what is up to date, especially those who are lovers of books.

A lesson in simplicity seems like an interesting teaching, so it's too bad that the book needs some improvement. However, some people might take from it what they need. Great job with the review!

Editing seems always like a pain, but it also distracts readers from appreciating what they are reading. Thanks for an honest review!

I see a lot of books much like this one and it takes a lot for them to really stand out so the poor editing does the author no favours. Such a shame. Thank you for an honest review.

I don’t know why, but it is true that sharing meals together strengthens all kinds of relationships. This sounds like a thought-provoking book. Thank you for your take!
