Virtual Book Tour: 5 Essential Dimensions by @lightphilosophy with an #interview and a #giveaway

Nonfiction Self Help
Date Published: August 2016

This book unveils an amazing theory. Our lives have five dimensions that are essential for living a healthy, successful, and tranquil existence. These are our financial, social, internal, physical, and spiritual affairs. This book offers insight into helping us recognize the five life dimensions. It will teach us how to bring these dimensions into balance. We cannot reach our potential as individuals unless all five of these life dimensions are balanced. If we neglect any one of them, the ensuing disharmony destroys our tranquility and can wreck our lives. The 5 Essential Dimensions is an attempt to prevent this happening.


What was the hardest part of writing your book?
The most challenging part of writing this book was writing the section about internal equilibrium. I spent many years of my life reading psychology books. I wanted to create a pattern for people to allow them to understand internal equilibrium and it was not an easy task. The other parts of the book were less challenging.

What songs are most played on your iPod?
I mostly listen to nonfiction audiobooks. I enjoy learning.

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?
Of course. After I wrote the first draft of my book, I gave it to around 10 or 12 of my friends and collected comments. I also used editors and probably revised the Arabic version about 200 times and the English version another 200 times because I seek perfection and that is my nature.

What book are you reading now?
I am listening to the audiobook, Real Food, Fake Food by Larry Olmsted.

How did you start your writing career?
In 2012, I started as a column writer for one of the leading newspapers in Kuwait. Some friends kept suggesting that I write a book as they liked what I was writing in my columns. Also, I am a good analyst with a nature of pattern recognition, so I decided to write a book about life. I didn’t know at the time that the book would turn out as it did, it evolved along the way.

I am busy writing my next book in Arabic, which should hopefully be finished by the end of this year. I will then begin working on the English translation. I hope it will be available in English in mid 2018. I am trying to answer one question in this next book: What is the meaning of life? You need to wait for the book to know more J
