The author writes informatively about the Buddhist view of death and suffering and the true nature of human life. The main section of the book then, is based on daily practice and indeed how to transform your life, based on the profound concepts of the first couple of chapters. This involves discussion on why it is a good idea to cherish other people and also then, how to learn to cherish other people. Anger is a subject also covered in great detail and the chapters on it certainly help to put a lot of things into perspective. Towards the end of the book, there is also a short section on meditation, the reasons for it and how to begin practicing. From a beginner's point of view, I found this useful and easy to understand: it was very clear and also sympathetic to the difficulties of meditation!
I found the book precise in its explantion of the ideals of Buddhism and each point was reinforced with either ancient or modern-day logic. Actually it was so well written that at times it was almost as though the author was in the same room! His humour and warmth comes across in many places, which for such heavy subject matter, is important I feel.
Although the tradition behind the book goes back thousands of years, it's by no means a historical account. I would say it's a guide that can be read easily (and enjoyably) from start to finish, then referred back to at the reader's discretion as they become more involved in the practice of the tradition.Read more ›
By sincerely putting the principles described in this book into practice, I have found that my life has improved immensely - my relationships are fuller and my general state of mind has become more calm and peaceful. I have more control over my mind and as a result my life.
It takes honesty and effort but if inner peace and fulfilment are what you are searching for, this book will put you in the right direction.
This is a very good book that really does have the capacity to change your life for the better. It comes strongly from a Buddhist perspective, so those of this persuasion are likely to gain the most from this book. However this said, if you approach with an open mind your are likely to gain benefit no matter what your background. The author has written many books and this one is particularly good. Highly recommended.
