Who will like this book?
If you are into eastern religion (specifically Buddhism) you will like it, as it is a real life implementation of "enlightenment" on a daily basis. If you are not into eastern religion, I think that you will like it just as well, as it is a practical day-to-day guide for "happiness".
If you are interested in alternate world views, you might like this book.
If you are a technophile, you will be interested in this book as an intellectual exercise.
Who will not like this book?
If you are freaked out be non-Western religious thought, then you may not like this book. While it is not "religious" per se, those who are firmly tied to Western religious tradition and cannot view this as a philosophical exercise, might find it difficult to let go.
If you are not from a tradition of liberal thinking which enjoys going beyond normal boundaries of American culture, then this book may not be for you.
Overall, I thought it was a great book for me.
