I read this book having read The Enneagram by Simon Parke. I love both books. Each day I read excerpts from The Beautiful Life and find it soothes my mind. He encourages the reader to 'be present' something I find quite difficult but each time I remind myself to 'be present' I feel much happier. This is just one example of the ten commandments.
I highly recommend it and also Simon's The Enneagram is wonderful.
