My only criticism is that logic utilized to reach a conclusion seems a bit scattered at times. This is probably due to my engineering/practical mind that prohibits me from thinking too abstractly about spirituality and philosophy. If you are interested in some of mankind's most challenging subject matter and would like an enjoyable read, I'll Put My 3 Chips on God is just the book for you.
As 2012 comes to a end, many of us could also be contemplating their new year resolution. Arguably, for most people, this proverbial new year's resolution could be a pivotal moment in one's life. Despite this fact, there will be others who will ponder their existence as they watch the New Year's Ball drop in Time Square. If you're looking for spiritual direction in your life, now is the best time to consider buying "I'll Put 3 Chips on God" by Preeti Gupta. Buy the book now and read it with an opened mind and you'll discover a new way to look at religion and the existence of God.
expect to like this book, but to my great surprise I did. The beginning is
filled with humor, but the book ends with some deep thoughts. The author is
incredibly funny and if her career as a financial planner doesn't pan out,
she could always go into comedy writing. Within the many humorous remarks
are some profounds questions and insights (possibly discussed under
the influence of heavy doses of dessert chocolate -- the author's not so
secret passion). While I don't agree with some of the author's conclusions,
this is not the purpose of this book. It is to help you think about the
profound issues we all face. If the thought of reading Kierkegaard makes
your eyes glaze over and you would rather watch Seinfeld, this is a book
Right from the beginning of this book, I like it. The author, Preeti Gupta, has captured me. This isn't some sort of really dull non-fiction / self help book; this is a book with a spirit, one that I can relate to. The author begins explaining her life simply and her relation to religion, being that she doesn't really have one to begin with. I certainly feel the same. Agnostic is the official term, I believe, which is how I feel I am. I don't have a definite religion. I believe in something, but I just don't know what. Unicorns, that's what I believe in, but that's just me. The author then goes to explain all sorts of things about the universe and belief systems as she sees it. I think it's a pretty interesting view on life. The author presents some interesting theories and arguments to do with each type of belief, based on what they know about the subject or their understanding. They also use science to explain religions, spirituality and things like karma.
Overall, I found it quite relateable. Gupta has added some very personal touches to the book such as humour, some which is easily missed if you aren't paying attention. Speaking of not paying attention, she's also added summaries to many points so you can catch up if you were a bit distracted, but too lazy to go back. It has minimal bad language, though I would like to warn you about plant and bug death within the book, if that's the type of thing you find upsetting. I think it's a book that might appeal to all sorts of audiences.
I received a copy of this in return for an honest review. I'm quite happy rating it five stars as I feel it's well deserving of such a rating; I could easily relate to many instances within the novel and could see a lot of my own life in the book.
