Wisdom and humility are big themes in the book but I believe that Rza draws lines through events to create an over-arching narrative in his life in quite a grandiose manner. For example when his studio gets flooded he waxes lyrical on the mystic powers of water and links it to Kung Fu films whereas it's really just a pretty unfortunate accident (or perhaps the result of his own foolishness for having his kit so close to the ground in a basement that's prone to flooding).
Rza's words are a curious mix of Christianity, chess theory, street knowledge, poorly reasoned (misogynistic and racist) nation of Islam doctrines, Eastern philosophy and kung fu. It's a pic n mix where he takes the parts he likes and ignores the contradictions between some of the science he references and the religious dogma it contradicts, but it's always engagingly written and honest in its tone.
