did not like it

A self important book; harmless; stale and redundant at the most. Its main philosophy, which could be summed up in a motto, in a simple quote, ‘be now’, need not have been tirelessly expanded into a book, thus evidently and endlessly protracting a more or less common virtue. And the book held a sense of rigidity, perhaps its being seemingly anti-individuality, and its one-sided approach to ‘thoughts’ and ‘emotions’. Emotions after all could never be dictated. And even thoughts arise from dark roots of complexity, incomprehensible even to the thinker himself. To be a human is multitudinous; and the book a simpleton.
