Osho, in his daily discourses which have been turned into books, had the uncanny ability to sift through layers of cultural superstitions, defaults, and outmoded paradigms and bring to light a very pragmatic and profound style for being total alive. This book, as well as all the Essentials, make essential reading for people serious about having deep fun in living.
To simply chalk up Osho as a spiritual leader would be an understatement. If anything, he enlightens. He rebels. But most importantly, he preaches. But not as most priests do. When it comes to inner peace, and happiness - Osho preaches realism. He doesn't goad you to aim for the stars. If anything, he encourages you to peer into your roots, and embrace it.

It covers some of the very Basic & Essential Questions the we deal in our Daily Life.

Osho, very Simply, yet with gr7 Depths; conveys the Message & the Meaning of - what R called as 'In Thing' words like - Fame, Fortune, Ambition, Success, Competition, Race, Performance, Duty, Responsibility... and the list is quiet a long...!

Truly an eye-opener & must read, esp. for the younger generation; who have recently or are yet to venture into the world of CAREERS & CONDITIONINGS, that's
"When the gods wnat to punish us, they answer our prayers." - Oscar Wilde

"Sooner or later, you are going to see the futility of the very idea of "more", because the "more" brings nothing but more misery." - OSHO

"Positive thinking is simply the philosophy of hypocrisy." - OSHO
As usual, Osho provides an alternative perspective that is helpful and enjoyable to read. I would recommend this to workaholics, anyone job hunting, or if you just feel a bit crazy from work taking over your life. For all of you, this will feel like a huge relief to read.
