There are few writers that can actually bring me to tears. Roland Merullo is one of them. The characters are recurring and have become so real to me that I feel as if I know them on a deep level. This is not a diet book but it does have some solid dieting advice in addition to some serious life lessons (as do all of the Rinpoche books). Read this book. It's a gem.
Wish it was longer. I find myself quite attached to these characters and think about them as if they were friends. I wonder how they are doing. This book is a continuation of the exploration of our collective self loathing. Great read!
If you havent read "Breakfast with Budda", "Lunch with Budda", and "Dinner with Budda" they are must reads. You will fall in love with the family and it makes this book even better, but even as a stand alone book, this is a great one. The diet part is a great starting point and full of fun.
Another enjoyable story written by a very mindful author. This might be considered more of a long short story, a very easy flowing read, again showcasing the human condition and the short comings we all possess. Rinpoche is one of my top ten favorite literary personalities. I am praying for more sequels.
