5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing! 20 Aug 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book of great insight and full of simple truths. Satish Kumar is a light in the darkness of a confused materialistic world. What he offers are suggestions as to how we might be able to get out of a fix through the stories of encounters with visionary people. One to read again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly exceptional 16 Feb 2012
By Asha
If we had to live in a world where it was only possible to read one book in a life-time this is the book I would choose. Never have I seen in one volume such a complete picture of the philosophy of unity and its relevance in daily life. The author explains, with clarity, depth and simplicity, things that it has taken me 30 years to learn without the benefit of his work. It would be very difficult to read this book without having your life changed in very positive ways. A work of outstanding excellence.

4.0 out of 5 stars inspirational 5 Nov 2011
By Dill
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you enjoy Satish Kumar's writings you will like this book. Some parts of the book probably have been touched upon already in his autobiography, but this doesn't detract from it being an inspiring read by a remarkable person.
