Very interesting book, with thought provoking ideas and wonderful stories about people who are much more self aware than most.
The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5, is because of the fonts and actual print so many were small or in a light color that made it difficult to read. There were many pictures that were beautiful, however, some of the pictures were so hazy that they were difficult to see as well.
