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.
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
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.
Ignore the title or illustrated cover, at least for me it gives little hint of the practical insight gained from reading. You will benefit from reading some chapters more than once. Chapters I read more than once were on attachment, detachment, the stranger in the mirror, vegetarianism and squashing bugs, small acts of kindness and others. I have highlights in other chapters that for me contained meaningful unexpected pieces of wisdom, comfort and assurance. My kindle makes finding these parts easy.
I was surprised the affect from reading some chapters was an immediate relief of stress and self doubt that is now allowing me to focus with more certainty on life's challenges to benefit not just me but others.
It really was a cool journey as it was like the author was right with me helping me along to understand and laugh. The writing style was so much fun to read. An exceptionally talented writer. She had me laughing out loud with out of left field references to Marcia Brady from the Brady Bunch pretending everyone in the audience is nude, or seeing herself as more of Mike Brady not Donald Trump that comes home from work to a simple, groovy life where everybody knows my name and they're always glad I came.
I can't fully express the book in this review but at least for me it's a must read, a reference and source of answers, inspiration and comfort. Thanks for this important contribution!
