    Anjali Kumar is a lawyer who is used to having all the answers. After she had a daughter, Anjali realized she knew very little about the big questions: why are we here? What is it all about? Is there a God? "In 2010, when my daughter Zia was born, I decided that I needed to find God...

    After Anjali Kumar has a baby, she decides she needs greater spiritual understanding---mostly so she knows what to tell her daughter when her daughter asks: Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? What happens when we die? Is there a God? So Kumar goes on a quest for ans...

    This won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it absolutely delighted me. The book begins when Anjali decides she wants to find "something to believe in" following the birth of her daughter. After not growing up with a religious faith, she decided to pursue a wild array of different spiritu...

    The Search For The Meaning Of Life The author, a successful business person and mother, came to the decision that she had to find the answer to THE BIG QUESTIONS in order to explain them rationally to her young daughter. The four big questions of life. Why are we here? What is the mean...

    This book was less about seeking God and more about looking for spirituality and Kumar went looking for it everywhere. From Machu Picchu to Japan, Anjali traveled the globe to immerse herself in a variety of spiritual experiences like living in a communal R.V. at Burning Man to feastin...

    I love a good search for your spirit book and this doesn?t disappoint. Plus, now I don?t have to go to Burning Man! ...

    This book was more of a memoir of a religious pursuit of happiness. I personally did not care for it, I expected it to be told more like a story rather than an itinerary of the authors adventures in finding her way. It was well written, just not in a style I personally prefer. If you l...

    It's been a strange year for me.  The Little Dude is now 14 months old and the discussion of what religious views to raise him with have pretty much dissipated completely.  That doesn't mean that I haven't been thinking about it, though, and thinking about it has led me on a bit of m...

    I'm interested in reading accounts of how people who come to their spiritual and/or religious beliefs; however, this one, while definitely entertaining here and there, felt hard to relate with. This is not because of my own faith, but because the author often reminded the reader of the...

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. While Anjali Kumar is a lawyer, coming from the tech world, married to a doctor, and I'm just a middle aged women who has long wondered the same questions, I felt a kinship with her. I d...

    Anjali Kumar references Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love (both the book, and the movie based on it, validly distinguishing between the two) many times in Stalking God. Maybe one wouldn't exist without the other, but Kumar's book is so much better than Gilbert's that I'm sad it hasn'...

    I enjoyed this book thoroughly. I lived vicariously through her journey for the meaning of life. I have always been curious about many of the ?off the beaten path? religions she experienced, so this was a great way to get the ?inside? scoop on the religions with candid and humo...

    As a former western philosophy professor who has also done her share of mystical seeking, this book spoke to me! I enjoyed hearing Kumar, who at the time was head counsel for Google, talk about her attempts to find a connection to something greater. Her account of suffering on a dank y...

    I absolutely adored this book. Anjali?s writing style is refreshingly funny and relatable. Her story is filled with profound insights on the human condition and the insecurities we all encounter on this beautiful blue ball in space. I admittedly ?lost it? and felt tears on my fac...

    Kinda fun. Hard for me to relate to an upper middle class corporate lawyer who knows people who wear fancy clothes and know fancy people and who can get on jets and fly all over the place. Kinda fun. ...

    Eh it was ok. I thought it would be more eye opening and insightful. I enjoyed the scientific tie-in's since I can be pretty skeptical. The sheet randomness of the book was refreshing but not as impactful as I had hoped. All that being said, it's an easy and often entertaining read. ...

    4.5. Such an enjoyable read. Several parts made me laugh until I was crying. And as others have said, now I don?t need to go to Burning Man. Thank you! ...

    Had to abandon this book... unfortunately. The author is interesting, does interesting things but this reads more like a personal diary. ...

    The author went on some really strange adventures, but came away with some simple but important insights. A very enjoyable read with a LOT of humor. ...

    I learned about myself that I am not one for spiritual sampling other than the sense of commonality in life truisms. I did find her experience at Burning Man interesting. ...

    Lighthearted, humorous, enlightening...spirituality 101. Loved it. My take-away is to at least learn TM. ...

    I love a good search for your spirit book and this doesn?t disappoint. Plus, now I don?t have to go to Burning Man! ...

    This book was more of a memoir of a religious pursuit of happiness. I personally did not care for it, I expected it to be told more like a story rather than an itinerary of the authors adventures in finding her way. It was well written, just not in a style I personally prefer. If you l...

    It's been a strange year for me.  The Little Dude is now 14 months old and the discussion of what religious views to raise him with have pretty much dissipated completely.  That doesn't mean that I haven't been thinking about it, though, and thinking about it has led me on a bit of m...

    I'm interested in reading accounts of how people who come to their spiritual and/or religious beliefs; however, this one, while definitely entertaining here and there, felt hard to relate with. This is not because of my own faith, but because the author often reminded the reader of the...

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. While Anjali Kumar is a lawyer, coming from the tech world, married to a doctor, and I'm just a middle aged women who has long wondered the same questions, I felt a kinship with her. I d...

    Anjali Kumar references Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love (both the book, and the movie based on it, validly distinguishing between the two) many times in Stalking God. Maybe one wouldn't exist without the other, but Kumar's book is so much better than Gilbert's that I'm sad it hasn'...

    I enjoyed this book thoroughly. I lived vicariously through her journey for the meaning of life. I have always been curious about many of the ?off the beaten path? religions she experienced, so this was a great way to get the ?inside? scoop on the religions with candid and humo...

    As a former western philosophy professor who has also done her share of mystical seeking, this book spoke to me! I enjoyed hearing Kumar, who at the time was head counsel for Google, talk about her attempts to find a connection to something greater. Her account of suffering on a dank y...

    Kinda fun. Hard for me to relate to an upper middle class corporate lawyer who knows people who wear fancy clothes and know fancy people and who can get on jets and fly all over the place. Kinda fun. ...

    Eh it was ok. I thought it would be more eye opening and insightful. I enjoyed the scientific tie-in's since I can be pretty skeptical. The sheet randomness of the book was refreshing but not as impactful as I had hoped. All that being said, it's an easy and often entertaining read. ...

    4.5. Such an enjoyable read. Several parts made me laugh until I was crying. And as others have said, now I don?t need to go to Burning Man. Thank you! ...

    Had to abandon this book... unfortunately. The author is interesting, does interesting things but this reads more like a personal diary. ...

    The author went on some really strange adventures, but came away with some simple but important insights. A very enjoyable read with a LOT of humor. ...

    Anjali Kumar is a lawyer who is used to having all the answers. After she had a daughter, Anjali realized she knew very little about the big questions: why are we here? What is it all about? Is there a God? "In 2010, when my daughter Zia was born, I decided that I needed to find God...

    After Anjali Kumar has a baby, she decides she needs greater spiritual understanding---mostly so she knows what to tell her daughter when her daughter asks: Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? What happens when we die? Is there a God? So Kumar goes on a quest for ans...

    After Anjali Kumar has a baby, she decides she needs greater spiritual understanding---mostly so she knows what to tell her daughter when her daughter asks: Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? What happens when we die? Is there a God? So Kumar goes on a quest for ans...

    This won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it absolutely delighted me. The book begins when Anjali decides she wants to find "something to believe in" following the birth of her daughter. After not growing up with a religious faith, she decided to pursue a wild array of different spiritu...

    The Search For The Meaning Of Life The author, a successful business person and mother, came to the decision that she had to find the answer to THE BIG QUESTIONS in order to explain them rationally to her young daughter. The four big questions of life. Why are we here? What is the mean...

    This book was less about seeking God and more about looking for spirituality and Kumar went looking for it everywhere. From Machu Picchu to Japan, Anjali traveled the globe to immerse herself in a variety of spiritual experiences like living in a communal R.V. at Burning Man to feastin...

    I love a good search for your spirit book and this doesn?t disappoint. Plus, now I don?t have to go to Burning Man! ...

    This book was more of a memoir of a religious pursuit of happiness. I personally did not care for it, I expected it to be told more like a story rather than an itinerary of the authors adventures in finding her way. It was well written, just not in a style I personally prefer. If you l...

    It's been a strange year for me.  The Little Dude is now 14 months old and the discussion of what religious views to raise him with have pretty much dissipated completely.  That doesn't mean that I haven't been thinking about it, though, and thinking about it has led me on a bit of m...

    I'm interested in reading accounts of how people who come to their spiritual and/or religious beliefs; however, this one, while definitely entertaining here and there, felt hard to relate with. This is not because of my own faith, but because the author often reminded the reader of the...

    The author went on some really strange adventures, but came away with some simple but important insights. A very enjoyable read with a LOT of humor. ...

    I learned about myself that I am not one for spiritual sampling other than the sense of commonality in life truisms. I did find her experience at Burning Man interesting. ...

    Lighthearted, humorous, enlightening...spirituality 101. Loved it. My take-away is to at least learn TM. ...

    Anjali Kumar is a lawyer who is used to having all the answers. After she had a daughter, Anjali realized she knew very little about the big questions: why are we here? What is it all about? Is there a God? "In 2010, when my daughter Zia was born, I decided that I needed to find God...

    After Anjali Kumar has a baby, she decides she needs greater spiritual understanding---mostly so she knows what to tell her daughter when her daughter asks: Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? What happens when we die? Is there a God? So Kumar goes on a quest for ans...

    This won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it absolutely delighted me. The book begins when Anjali decides she wants to find "something to believe in" following the birth of her daughter. After not growing up with a religious faith, she decided to pursue a wild array of different spiritu...

    The Search For The Meaning Of Life The author, a successful business person and mother, came to the decision that she had to find the answer to THE BIG QUESTIONS in order to explain them rationally to her young daughter. The four big questions of life. Why are we here? What is the mean...

    This book was less about seeking God and more about looking for spirituality and Kumar went looking for it everywhere. From Machu Picchu to Japan, Anjali traveled the globe to immerse herself in a variety of spiritual experiences like living in a communal R.V. at Burning Man to feastin...

    I love a good search for your spirit book and this doesn?t disappoint. Plus, now I don?t have to go to Burning Man! ...

    This book was more of a memoir of a religious pursuit of happiness. I personally did not care for it, I expected it to be told more like a story rather than an itinerary of the authors adventures in finding her way. It was well written, just not in a style I personally prefer. If you l...

    It's been a strange year for me.  The Little Dude is now 14 months old and the discussion of what religious views to raise him with have pretty much dissipated completely.  That doesn't mean that I haven't been thinking about it, though, and thinking about it has led me on a bit of m...

    I'm interested in reading accounts of how people who come to their spiritual and/or religious beliefs; however, this one, while definitely entertaining here and there, felt hard to relate with. This is not because of my own faith, but because the author often reminded the reader of the...

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. While Anjali Kumar is a lawyer, coming from the tech world, married to a doctor, and I'm just a middle aged women who has long wondered the same questions, I felt a kinship with her. I d...

    Anjali Kumar references Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love (both the book, and the movie based on it, validly distinguishing between the two) many times in Stalking God. Maybe one wouldn't exist without the other, but Kumar's book is so much better than Gilbert's that I'm sad it hasn'...

    I enjoyed this book thoroughly. I lived vicariously through her journey for the meaning of life. I have always been curious about many of the ?off the beaten path? religions she experienced, so this was a great way to get the ?inside? scoop on the religions with candid and humo...

    As a former western philosophy professor who has also done her share of mystical seeking, this book spoke to me! I enjoyed hearing Kumar, who at the time was head counsel for Google, talk about her attempts to find a connection to something greater. Her account of suffering on a dank y...

    I absolutely adored this book. Anjali?s writing style is refreshingly funny and relatable. Her story is filled with profound insights on the human condition and the insecurities we all encounter on this beautiful blue ball in space. I admittedly ?lost it? and felt tears on my fac...

    Kinda fun. Hard for me to relate to an upper middle class corporate lawyer who knows people who wear fancy clothes and know fancy people and who can get on jets and fly all over the place. Kinda fun. ...

    Eh it was ok. I thought it would be more eye opening and insightful. I enjoyed the scientific tie-in's since I can be pretty skeptical. The sheet randomness of the book was refreshing but not as impactful as I had hoped. All that being said, it's an easy and often entertaining read. ...

    4.5. Such an enjoyable read. Several parts made me laugh until I was crying. And as others have said, now I don?t need to go to Burning Man. Thank you! ...
