The book is incredibly Judeo-Christian-Muslim in perspective. Asian people from Hindus to Daoists to Buddhists, to an array of other religions will find it nearly impossible to relate with. To draw parallels and connections of harmony and throw in the added mix of "a God," singular... This book has been written from a totally Western perspective, which I found disheartening because two of its authors are Peruvians, which is a very Catholic country but which is also full of lore and spirituality from the native people of the Andes and Amazon. When Charlemagne was declared Holy Roman Emperor and made peace with the pope the world was forever set on a new path. Reading this book reminded me of that moment in history, and that is not necessarily a good thing.
Just some constructive criticism, but I highly suggest reading the book. Moroto does succeed in presenting his idea that Harmony is possible. Such perspectives are crucial in this day and age, and worth a read.
