I started leafing through this book sceptically. I was adamant that the teachings in this book are absolute ludacrisy. The title was quite misleading at first, I thought it was a book to stop procrastinating. Apparently, it's got nothing to do with that, it was way beyond that. Although I don't completely agree with everything the author is saying, I can see the point of what he means and see the goodness in it. And yes, I believe his words can be practiced and bring peace to everyone who tries it. That being said, I don't believe that his teaching is absolute. It is the kind of teaching that can be applied with an individual's own belief or religion. It is the core of all religions when we strip them off the rituals and deities. What I find most troubling is the fact that he often mentions words from Jesus and Buddha, but doesn't really spread them out toward other religions as well (which really seems quite biased) and that he doesn't seem to be married or with children at the time of writing this book, which puts his credibility into question.
