Publisher's Summary

At this time I began to write, from vanity, greed, and pride. In my writings I did exactly as in life. In order to possess the glory and the wealth for whose sake I wrote, it was necessary to conceal the good, and to display the bad. And so I did.

Tolstoy’s autobiographical essay is a dissection of his soul, a study of his life’s movement away from the religious certainties of youth, and a vital piece of reading which contextualizes the great works he is best known for. Marking the point at which his life moved from the worldly to the spiritual, Tolstoy’s philosophical reassessment of the Orthodox faith is a work that holds vital spiritual and intellectual importance to this very day.

    "An exceptional work with infinite possibilities"

    For those facing depression, for those with questions why should I continue, what's it all for... Tolstoy faces his dark existence in an apocalyptic Russia and finds a reason for living. A must read for those going through bleak times, for those who no longer have a rug under them to be pulled out from beneath them.

    "Causes reflection and desire to feel truth"

    Excellent written testimony. Great consideration of science and secular perception as well as the the origin of truth and intelligence.

    "Beautifully written and narrated."

    My first Tolstoy book and it was worth it. Wonderfully narrated and performed. Not for the shallow hearts but for those that run deep.
