The Pursuit of the Personal Renaissance Experience

"The Pursuit of the Personal Renaissance Experience" by Dr. Peter G. Justus

In “The Pursuit of the Personal Renaissance Experience: Finding Opportunities for Happiness in the Ever-Present Now” (ISBN 1466453915), Dr. Peter G. Justus touches upon the personal dynamics that keep happiness present in one’s life. In this book, the gastroenterologist shares the life philosophy that has led him to a more fulfilling life.

He learned that happiness is deeply tied to two basic missions that we, as human beings, all have the opportunity to pursue. These are the pursuit of physical immortality and the pursuit of spiritual immortality. It is our biological makeup that drives the search for physical mortality.  We can find more durable forms of meaning and personal fulfillment in our quest for spiritual immortality, but both pursuits are very important. Using examples from popular movies, old television shows, and with references to other well-known features of our culture, he shows how people can increase their happiness by discovering the meaning in all they do, even in the most mundane daily activities.

The doctor was inspired to write this book after he experienced an epiphany while, oddly enough, battling dental plaque. Instead of finding happiness in various types of indulgences, Justus encourages readers to find happiness by seeking what he describes as “personal renaissance experiences” in their daily life roles.  

“In the course of our day we spend more time in processes that involve relationships with other people than we do with the pure technical aspects of our work,” says Justus. “Unfortunately, however, we often assume that since some expert has already found the best strategy to do our work we do not need to critically examine how we perform them, or we may not understand how to go about making our personal relationships more fulfilling, and we allow these numerous and  precious units of time to become unfulfilling ‘existential vacuums.’”

“The Pursuit of the Personal Renaissance Experience” is a book that reveals realistic strategies for finding happiness in everyday life. Delivered with a light touch and humorous anecdotes, the book will help others to find personal meaning in the course of their lives.

“The Pursuit of the Personal Renaissance Experience: Finding Opportunities for Happiness in the Ever-Present Now” is available for sale online at and other channels.
