I like this book about a man who goes to prison, begins questioning his life, and becomes enlightened. It is a powerful story in a way that all such stories are: in it's utter simplicity, it reveals the man behind the book with honesty and focus--enough to indeed turn onions to pearls. This book is a chronicle of a life redeemed through one man's practice of such unfaltering self-honesty and focus. From Onions to Pearls deserves a permanent space on my shelf.

Has been a while since I've read Satyam's book and I gave it away to a friend when I was through : )
I have a new copy now, so think I'll read again, another cool story of one finding one's "inner" once again : )
I really enjoyed this book.
