    " A little too simplistic. Or it could have been a much shorter book. "

    " This book reads more like a self-help book than a book of philosophy. for that reason, it is something I cannot connect to as well. "Do this" and "Do that" is all over the book, and though it fits with the teachings of the Buddhist philosophy, it settles awkwardly in my mind. "

    " "You imagine that certain conditions are necessary to your happiness, but deep looking will reveal to you that those notions are the very things standing in the way of happiness and are making you suffer." "
