did not like it

I picked up this book in support of a resolution to be more "present" and hoped this would give me ways to put that into practice. Instead I got a lot of preachy and judgmental declarations cloaked in self proclaimed "enlightenment." I found his efforts to support his ideas with "hidden" meanings in Christian doctrines made me think of crazy evangelicals who use numerology to prove Obama to the antichrist and the end of the world next Tuesday. There are a few good thoughts shared, but they are often buried in new-age speak and probably this work could easily be replaced with the serenity prayer.
