Roshni Kanchan May I share part of this review on a FB closed group, please? This book is recommended on a Coursera course and I'd like to share your feedback there, if it is ok with you.

Roshni Kanchan I shared the whole review on FB while I copied this part of your review in another discussion on the Coursera forum -
"It also brings to the fore another important point – the wisdom of the ages dismissed by the waves of modernity, and deserving another look. You may just find that the secret to a right life was known long ago – hidden away in classics and practices which nobody bothers to look at any more.

He discusses the problems in making such practices mainstream. In fact when he first tells people he has taken up meditation they look at him strangely. This is because such practices with origins in Eastern philosophies are associated with either robed monks or hippies. He decides a better way is to say that he has started a practice which has made him 10% happier. "

I quoted you both places :)
