Do you really know the meaning of something someone says? Have you ever really understood calculus? How wide is a spider’s web? How can you make more money? How do you find happiness?

In a series of short essays on author Norman S. Pratt’s personal experiences, PEARLS FOR THE MOMENT offers answers to these and other fascinating questions. Presented as an easy-to-read guide filled with valuable tidbits of basic knowledge and understanding about such topics as religion, money, science, love, and truth, this guide serves as a convenient reference for those times when you need to learn about something you never knew, or that you might have forgotten.

PEARLS FOR THE MOMENT is a thought-provoking, practical text for use in analyzing your own personal philosophy for consistency and completeness. Learn how to recognize and understand the basis for your own thought process and how to react to the many little unexpected situations in everyday life.

This guide is not for wimps, religious zealots, the supercilious righteous, or those of Machiavellian leanings. It is for just plain folks who strive for and appreciate the best things in life—health, security, and happiness.
