really liked it
Recommended for: everyone

I love this book for obvious reasons, daily stories and suggestions for living a better life. However, I sometimes forgot about it for weeks at a time because it seems redundant sometimes or the stories just weren't that great.
But the book is truly one to have next to the bedside. It's good right before you go to sleep: read a story about this man's experiences and how he interprets them to staying present, appreciating what you have and just plain being happy in your life.
Oh and I'm not very religious so for other like me, the religious undertones are very subtle and not overbearing. Plus you can learn from how he views religion and spirituality. Just keep an open mind and take what you can from this book.
