How an Engineering Professor Becomes a Spiritual Philosopher is an autobiography by Dr. Tommy S.W. Wong. In it, Dr. Wong proudly shares his achievements and humbly shares his challenges and failures, to explain what these have taught him and where they have led him. The narrative style is direct and easy to understand. Dr. Wong emphasizes the concept that when things happen which seem disastrous at the time, the resulting change in your life's direction can lead to blessings that wouldn't otherwise have happened. Viewing life this way fosters an attitude of peace, gratitude, and joy, which Dr. Wong sincerely conveys.

This is a book for our times, when the drive for money and prestige often leads to a sense of emptiness. How many people are in prestigious, well-paying jobs but have no sense of worth or purpose? Spirituality is a basic human need and each one of us finds our own path to greater fulfillment. By his example, Wong has created the template for achieving a meaningful, productive life that meets both spiritual and professional needs.
Having said all this, I would like to verify Tommy Wong's credentials. In order to do this , Tommy Wong needs to give permission as well as the necessary information to do it, something I'm sure Dr. Wong is aware of. Can Dr. Wong provide such information? The ball is now in his court.
"How an Engineering Professor Becomes a Spiritual Philosopher" is the matter-of-fact recounting of Dr Tommy Wong's studies, career, life and insights, all in a short, easy-to-read 136 pages. I found it an enjoyable read.
Dr Wong wasn't just another engineering professor - he has 56 papers in international academic journals to his name.
He wasn't just another spiritual seeker - both his books on Sai Baba are listed on Wikipedia's "Sathya Sai Baba" page. His books are two of only ten listed on the page.
Perhaps the secret to making a mark in such different fields is the unrelenting search for truth/Truth, or - as Dr Wong puts it - not "bowing to power and money", "upholding his principles".
Whatever the reason / drive, every such journey we come across - in a book, a movie, a story told to us - leaves its mark on us in ways we often don't fully appreciate.
