Listener Opinions

    " A I spent a good nine months reading this book--I read a few pages before bedtime, whenever I had time. It really impacted me and was amazing. I loved this book, though it was sad and hard to read at times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexandra | 2/5/2014

    " This book changed the way I think about my life and motivations. It is amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zen Meditation | 2/4/2014

    " The achievement of this ancient text is that it firmly establishes that, in Buddhist theory, death is not an end, but a progression and, implicitly, outlines that change in the only constant, thereby celebrating one of the key precepts in Buddhism. A mainstay in the Buddhist catalogue. Highly recommended for one cannot have a thorough or (nearly) comprehensive understanding of Eastern philosophy without first reading this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Gofton | 1/29/2014

    " I read this book when I knew my mom wasn't going to live a whole lot longer. It helped me (and her) make the ending as lovely a journey as it can be. We don't spend enough time ushering ourselves out of this world. I read this again and again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea Joanna | 1/17/2014

    " Please read this book. It is such an inspiring and interesting read, especially because a lot of the ideas in this book are unfamiliar, or rarely fleshed out in American culture. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 1/16/2014

    " I can only do about two pages at a time max before I gaze off and contemplate, so not a page-turner, but in that savory good way. "
