Based on the recommendation of Jordan (HE Creator), I read this book today. And man, I’m glad I did. Many of the ideas are ones I’ve seen elsewhere and ones which have benefitted me on my spiritual journey. However, this author presented them in such a concise, digestible fashion. It was awesome and profound.

I recommended the book to all of my family members and about 30 friends. I’m writing this to recommend it to those of you who have yet to read it. And also, to anyone else who’s read it, thoughts?

I began reading it but didn’t finish because I ended up letting someone borrow it who read it and started lending it out to others in her family that, like herself, struggle with anger. What I did read, I did enjoy, and I did apply the mantra concerning all things that happen to me must be the very best possible. I have now reached a point where I don’t need to repeat it because my mind now, when presented with problems I cannot help, simply accepts it and moves on, aiming to make the best out of my day.
