At first glance this book may appear to be a difficult read but that is not the case. It lends itself well to dipping in and out of different sections and that, in turn, may lead to further exploration and engagement. This book is a joy to read and one to return to again and again.
It's method of asking the reader to reflect on their own highs and lows and learn from how you responded and felt was very powerful.
I am very passionate in terms of my beliefs and am a consummate believer that beliefs with actions are meaningless. Via this book I was began to realize how my passion could have undermined by my own emotional or not well thought out responses. I think when we are young an outburst sometimes is considered appropriate and even necessary to convey our intent and maybe it did convey exactly that but if faced with a similar situation how can I better couple what I've learned with my experience to arrive at a better response and follow through.
Furthermore, if you work in a science or engineering filed and/or consider yourself technically oriented this book will suite you. I have applied a model based problem solving approach to many relationships and interactions using 'data for' and 'data against' as a key mode for learning and improving. This book complements my approach perfectly by using common terms.
Lastly, I have been skeptical my whole like about meditation and its use as a tool for improvement but this book resells meditation in a very constructive manner to be used as a valuable tool for reflection.
I found the first 5 pages quite boring and fluffy and put the book down. About 4 months later I read a summary article in a magazine and thought the book was look a second chance - I haven't put it down since!
There are levels of concepts that in the latter stages of the book make it somewhat difficult - I will be re-reading a number of chapters.
Overall well worth the read.
It would particularly suit a man as a first read into the world of personal development.
