Reviewed by Daniel D Staats for Readers' Favorite

Robert Wheeler states that the purpose of his book, What, Why, & How, is to encourage thinking outside the box and to seek the answers to life’s more profound questions. Robert is a life-long learner. He has spent his life questioning and seeking answers to the deep questions of life. Why do we exist? Why are we here now? What is our purpose? How do we improve the future? These are just some of the questions Robert has pondered on and has graciously shared his answers in his book. The search for meaning requires deep thinking and philosophy. This book explores what most people think of as two polar opposites: religion/spirituality and science. You may not reach solid conclusions to your questions, but you will be able to think deeply when you have finished this book.

In What, Why, & How, Robert Wheeler shares knowledge acquired from his military then psychology career. His wisdom also comes from simply living life. Robert’s life covers a broad swathe of time, and his book covers a wide swathe of knowledge and philosophy. His writing is simple yet complex at the same time. He simplifies complex concepts, and yet the reader still has to put in the effort to think. This book is much too short to be exhaustive of the subject, but it is a fantastic start in your journey to learn the whats, whys, and hows of life. The bottom line is that life is a long pursuit of answers. Robert shows readers how to think about the questions and seek new and better answers.
