Richard’s life is full of routine. So routine that life got tuned out. Then one day he got a health scare. His routine was broken. And so was forced to participate in life. To engage with people. Richard starts helping out people. So much so that he becomes known as the Good Samaritan, for the help he provided. Along the way he meets very interesting people who help him understand how to engage with others. But Richard also helps them. A cycle of positive reinforcement. What he learns from others helps him reconnect with his son. A moral lesson of the story is that even if you cannot help yourself, you can still help others. A book containing psychology and philosophy while experiencing a variety of strange events.
This is a very immersive story. Making the case that the expectations that people have of others does not mean that the expectations meet reality.
