Recommends it for: All with sufficient maturity
Recommended to Raju by: Reedsy Discovery
This is a serious book, but you may find it a treasure. You've been chasing pretty rainbows all your life, and without exception, each one has turned to ashes in your hands. You've tried it again and again and now you're fed up with trying; like John Lennon who sang (towards the end of his life) “...

A very thought-provoking and inspiring book.

The language is appropriate even for those who are not Christian but are seeking some spiritual growth in a practical way.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who perhaps needs a new perspective on how to see and face our daily challenges always learning and growing.
