Little book of wisdom,

This review is from: The Little Book Of Wisdom (Paperback)
The little book of wisdom is probably one the most concise books on personal mental health you can get.
Whilst there are many books out there of the same genre,what makes this little book stand out is it's easiness to read.
Although written from the perspective of a Buddhist,it does not criticise any religion or indeed asks that you believe in Buddhism,only that you are aware of just how much control you have over your own thinking & life's direction.
If approached with an open mind,one can easily see the ultimate message regardless of personal beliefs.
Produced in a way where it can be read as a sort of daily affirmation,I found this book to be of great help towards a better understanding of myself,my place in this world & everyone & everything around me.
The self,being the one true relationship where once understood,puts most if not all things into their proper perspectives is what this book intends to do in a simple,concise way.
(Each page has no more than a few sentences on varying subjects)
I often find myself buying this book for many people I know & meet who seem to be at a point in their lives where they need some help with regards to their personal well being,with a suprising degree of success - ie: In some small measure it helped them compartmentalise everyday difficulties which with an unhealthy mind can become intricate & un-necessarily problematic.
This book is not a magic wand,but if the teachings are applied to everyday thinking can certainly lead to a healthier frame of mind,which in the end,is what we all could do with.
I would recommend the Dalai Lama's little book of wisdom to anyone even mildly intersted in promoting within themselves &/or others a healthy way of thinking & living.
It has certainly helped me.
