Ken Vegotsky intends, through this slender book, to enrich his
readers’ lives with “stories, inspirational ideas, sayings,
affirmations, humorous and, at times, thought provoking insights.”
Here are two examples: “Loving thought for the day: Children are great
teachers. Mine get me to practice the art of unconditional love,
daily”; “Enrich your Life: Plant a flower—outdoors or indoors.”

As with most self-help and motivational texts, the appeal of 222 Ways
to Make Love with Life will depend largely on personal preference: one
reader’s inspiration is another’s emetic. Though some of the
book’s suggestions are agreeable, others are humdrum,
incomprehensible, or frankly nauseating. Finally, the text has escaped
the attentions of a competent proofreader; it is replete with spelling
errors and incorrect punctuation. Anyone writing about men’s prostate
health should take the trouble to confirm the correct spelling for this
pesky gland.
