After reading The Parallax, I realized that I might be able to see my life and daily activities in a different perspective. This book had very good and detailed examples of how people changed viewpoints after reading about Frank and Sarah’s story. Some involved relationships, work, or the past that they cannot change. It seems like today that everyone doesn’t have time for anything. I find myself using that excuse too often, when in reality, I’m just not using my time wisely. This book makes you just want to stop time for bit so we can reflect on our lives, past or present. Here recently, our college has been facing 2 student deaths, one being my basketball teammate. It has really focused my attention on the “here and now” because life really is too short. Doing an analysis of yourself, like presented in this book, can help you re-focus and see what really is important in your life. Having that “a-ha” moment may just be what some people need to redirect their lives.
