Maybe More appropriate now than before
on January 18, 2014
I read this book back in the 70s (and only did part of it unfortunately). Recently, I have been studying habits (particularly mine), and human behavior. The elements of habit and human behavior in the book are amazingly current. It's a very simple version of neuro-linguistic programming. This time I read it, and then I tried two completely new approaches:
1. I printed the ten scrolls and tied them with raffia, and told the story to group of college and law students and admonished them to follow the scrolls. So far, so good. They were rapt in attention to the story.
2. As to myself, I am actually following the rules of the scrolls (obviously starting with the first one).
The difference is dramatic. I'd suggest to anyone seeking self-improvement; this is not a sales book: its is a life book. For the price of a decent classy coffee, you'll glean life lessons you'll share with others.
Of course, that is the point of the book.
