This book was thought provocative. The ideas that I encountered in this book, I have come across them for the first time, and they intrigued my mind. This is a good choice as a philosophical book.

I don’t believe that the title fit the book. I believe the book was more about finding one’s self than finding a way to be “in it together.”

This was a very thought provoking book. I read a lot of books like this that delve into philosophy and deep topics, but I’ve traded that in for more genre fictions. This book reminded me why I loved philosophy books before and I definitely want to read more like it.

You know, I shared this book with my mom, and she seems to enjoy reading it as much as she enjoyed Ben's Carson "Think Big". Scott hit a nail on the head with this one, and I must say that the influence this book can have in someone only if that person allows it is tremendous.

I think there is a lot to be learned from this book. I think recognizing that you are not alone in your struggles and troubles opens your mind to realizing that others are going through similar things and that's okay. Even though today may not be great, tomorrow the sun will rise and shine. We must concentrate on that and how we can support one another. We can lessen our own burdens by assisting others.

I am convinced that there is ample knowledge to gain from this book. I am of the opinion that acknowledging the challenges and difficulties faced by others, rather than solely focusing on oneself, broadens one's perspective and fosters acceptance that everyone experiences struggles. This understanding is essential in realizing that it is perfectly normal. While today may be unfavorable, rest assured that tomorrow will arrive, bringing with it a renewed radiance. Our attention should be directed towards aiding one another and exploring ways to provide support. Through extending assistance to others, we simultaneously alleviate our own burdens.

I have just found the book and started reading it. I like it so far. Sometimes, I get overwhelmed by everything it says, but I am happy with the book. I agree with some of the comments that it also feels like it could have taken more depth on the topics, but I am excited. I will update you when I finish the book.

What I loved the most about In It Together was its explanation of the commonality of struggles I initially thought were peculiar to me. I felt a lot of relief knowing that human experiences in different parts of the world are similar.

I enjoyed reading it, but felt that it could've had more depth. It seemed shallow and happy-go-lucky at times. I think I might reread it to see if I can unpack it more and find more depth.

The book was good and engaging. The book needs maximum attention to understand. Rushing it at any point will make you leave some details behind. The book is worth emulating.

The book was interesting and passed a good amount of lessons and knowledge as a non-fiction. I enjoyed reading it and would definitely have that memory for a long time.

There was a lot to learn from this book as I anticipated so I wasn't disappointed. In my opinion this book would help you navigate life seamlessly though I didn't agree with everything the book said.
