This wonderfully written audiobook inspired by real-life issues throws light on the challenges we face in our relationships and the perils of modern society. It explores shades of human nature and why we behave in ways detrimental to our well-being.

Neil's asexual marriage troubles him. Sylvia, a divorcee, wants nothing to do with men. When their paths cross, each finds a soulmate in the other. Yet, due to the forces of nature, they feel compelled to part ways so that the other can find happiness.

Neil is on a journey to understand himself and how he fits into the female sexual realm. His dilemma as he cruises through life has been brought to light as "men do not talk about their issues".

Sylvia is on a journey to understand love and happiness, and when faced with her friend's mortality to discover the "true purpose of life".

Quotes from the audiobook: 

  • "Men rarely shared their emotions with others. They discussed their conquests but not their failures."
  • "Somewhere, we are not only capable of drowning our partner's best but also bringing out the worst."
  • "Inundated by the success stories splashed all over, most of us lesser mortals walked on this Earth in a state of dereliction."

The purpose of this audiobook is to bust the confusion and myth surrounding love, sex, and happiness.

We are moving away from our core in pursuit of larger-than-life fantasies flashed at us, thus creating havoc in our minds and living with an understated dissatisfaction. This audiobook reflects on why the best life is not about big cars and big houses but something deeper and meaningful. To understand what that is, please listen to the audiobook.

From the author: As a physician, I began counseling my patients more than prescribing medications. This novel hints at solutions to stay happy in marriage, to heal relationships, and to attain the one element the human mind needs to find happiness.

Through the journey of Sylvia and Neil, this audiobook helps to figure out the most important ingredient to lead a successful life.
