Wisdom on How to Live Life (Book 3) by Dr. Tommy S. W. Wong is a conversation between Tom and Guru Harry about life. When Tom remarks that life on earth is becoming more and more difficult, the master admits that life does not have to be troublesome if one follows the correct approach. Choosing co-operation rather than competition, having a 'caring' society, removing the fear of death, and other similar actions if taken in time can lead us to the correct approach. Also, this can lead us to a more spiritual society that is a repository of peace.

He takes on such subjects as 'why we should take responsibility for our own actions' which seems to be the opposite of what happens today when hardly anybody assumes responsiblity for what they do.
I particularly liked his thought that morality is important compared with having lots of money. He maintains, and I agree with him, that morality attached to your good name can live on, whereas having wealth obviously can not. He goes on to say that good deeds should be done for their own reward rather than the acclaim that sometimes follows. All in all 25 points are discussed, but for me, the most important was the topic 'why it is better to solve problems with spiritual rather than physical solutions'.
If you want to be challenged in how you currently look at life and are prepared to look at things with new eyes, then do not hesitate to buy this book. You will never look at life in the same way again. You have been warned!
His usual conversational style makes this book very readable but contain so many points that bring this book from climax to climax.
Some issues highlighted in this book may likely not be agreed by religious leaders and it can be confusing for someone with weak religious faith to question if their God existed.
Lastly, my view is that this book is easy to read but difficult to apply especially when we are facing the real world daily. However, some of the points had subconsciously kicked into my mind and I will likely apply them in my daily life. To apply it wholely, it will takes a very special and courageous person to do it.
In essence, this book summarises the reasons behind the current state of the world, and the challenges in bringing new consciousness to the Earth.
