About the Book

Everyone experiences drama and unexpected changes in their lives. We’ve all exulted and endured. We’ve had loves and losses. We’ve tasted joys and sorrows and successes and setbacks. But each person reacts differently to these issues. In Our Emotional Footprint author Dr. Saul Levine examines humans’ reactions to relationships, life changes, and unexpected events.

Levine introduces ten unique people who are passengers in a single rail car and details their fascinating life stories. He looks at how the passengers fared at different points in their lives, how they may have been courageous at times and fearful at others, or were both caring and callous at different times. Through the lens of the four Bs—being, belonging, believing, and benevolence—Our Emotional Footprint examines their lives and our own, how they’ve affected others in the course of their lives, and how they may have been resilient in the face of defeat and gracious in times of success.

A celebration of so-called ordinary people, Our Emotional Footprint offers a collection of stories that provide a unique glimpse at life’s pathways and complexities and how we deal with our hopes and expectations.
