I really enjoyed this book. I found it to be educational as well as enjoyable, which is sometimes difficult for non-fiction books. Even a month later, I am still thinking about the lessons this book taught.

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.

This book made me realize that the beauty in our struggles in not a physical beauty, but an cohesive force that makes us human,a force that makes us realize that we could all be happy if only we embrace the fact that we are all the same. We are all trying to live our best lives, and being unkind towards other people will be like ignoring this beauty in our struggles and endeavors.

It took me multiple readings of the hardcover book to understand some of the concepts in enough depth to relate them to my life. I enjoyed how the book made me question theories I had never considered, like the presence of time or space. I rated this book 5/5 stars. I particularly appreciated the author’s inclusivity for religion and politics.

The book was easy to read. That's the most important thing about it. Most books of this genre are too filled with jargons that you have to have a dictionary next to you to make sense of every sentence, let alone a paragraph. The author was sincere and calm in his tone. The ideas he introduced were fresh and original.

I really enjoyed reading the book. It was a very positive and encouraging book that focused on similarities between people. There are common issues that we all face in life and I think it helps people to know that they are not alone in their struggles. Most people have similar issues or hardships and can relate to one another on some level.

I believe that there is a lot to learn out of this book. I believe if we can realize that others also struggle and have problems and it isn't just you, it widens you mind to accepting that others are also struggling like yourself and it is ok. Today might be bad, but the sun will come up again tomorrow and shine. We need to focus on that and how to help each other. By helping others we can lighten our own loads as well.

I enjoyed how eye-opening this book is and how it really makes one think about life, the universe, some odd scenarios, etc. This book should be read carefully and thoroughly to truly understand its meaning and to get the best possible results from out the book.

I loved the content of In It Together. I never thought about the idea of two 'yous' and thoroughly enjoyed how the book presented ideas to think about within your own life, acting as a sort of guide to see where you are now and how everything is going. I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars. As much as I loved the content, I feel like the writing style brought the overall potency of the content down. Yes, it was written in modern english, but the style was complex and lengthy. I am hoping to read this book again in about a year to see what other nuggets of information I can garner from it :)

It is rare to find a book that makes you question theories you have never considered. I also found the book made me think of things I try to avoid, but you need to think about these things to relate to others and hopefully help people who needs it.

I agree that the author made the book easy to read and understand, which I appreciate about non-fiction books. I also felt like it captured my attention from the first page.

I feel like most people don't understand that everyone mostly deal with the same problems and should try to come up with a solution together to try and overcome them. This book highlights this and makes people think about it more.

I also liked that the book made you think about a person's life and gave ideas to guide you in your life and how far you have come. I feel like rereading books always helps you find things you might have missed the first time you read it, making you feel like you read it for the first time. Especially if you found it difficult to read at first.
