In The Wise Man Said, author Priya Kumar is presented with a warning from her publisher to get back on track and reach her deadline… or else. But her creative well has run dry and she faces a future of uncertainty. Her professional life has come to a devastating standstill. How can she be productive when purpose eludes her? From her public, purpose is evident in the eyes of those who excitedly request a fan picture with her or a few words of encouragement personalized by her presence. This is all she ever dreamed of to equal a fulfilling and successful life. So why is she so empty? In a moment of desperation, Priya takes a solitary walk to encounter a strange old man who intrigues her with his presence and leaves her with his life journey in an old journal. The written words of The Wanderer occupy her for many hours after her return to her cabin, leaving her with a sense of well-being and a refreshed outlook on life.

“The path may come to an end but that doesn’t have to be the end of the journey.” Priya Kumar’s own words reflect the vast amount of knowledge shared in The Wise Man Said. A book narrated by the enlightening journey and words in the diary of The Wanderer, this is at first glance an easy read, but demands a second sitting as the weight of the lessons presented here far exceed the number of published pages. The Wise Man Said is a surprising guide book to the meaning of life.
