Everything Rabbi Pliskin writes is great.
I had the distinct pleasure of attending morning minyon's in an apartment house off of Haggadah Street in Jerusalem when I was on sabbatical at Hebrew University at Mt. Scopus in 2003-04. At the minyon there were books authored by Rabbi Pliskin, e.g., Wisdom, Courage, Kindness, Enthusiasm, and my favorite of all---Guard Thy Tongue (Lashon Horah). I recommend them all and my wife and I didn't hesitate to purchase them all at a Jerusalem book store. His books should be required reading in schools, and all adults should give themselves the opportunity to read each of Rabbi Pliskin's insightful, meaningful books.Charlie Richman

Indeed, it is important to think thru on our choices and actions.
I may not always appreciate the outcome of the choices I make, however, it doesn't really mean that I don't like myself.
I live and learn between what I can and what I shouldn't do, and I have the capability of making dramatic improvement in my life.
This is the first time in a while I've listened to Rabbi Pliskin's audio commentary, and the first time commenting on it. He is indeed a very smart and wise person giving insight on something to think about.
