This book is great! It has an innovative format, and information that will inspire you and make you laugh. At least someone is out there being positive!
Yes, it is true that this book is full of excellent ideas and will indeed provide direction and advice for a lot of people. However, I liked least the stories from the author. I got the impression throughout that the author was a little too strong and quirky with his convictions. I think that the author and most people who swear by this book would be very likely candidates for a commune in some sort of cult like counter-culture.
I very much enjoyed the many quotes and passages from other literary and historic figures. I do believe that the works of those people certainly can and have had a profound affect on readers as well as societies as a whole. I don't, however, believe that a person who gathers such quotes should be given the same status as those great authors of the past.
This page has been liberated for your own use? If you can read around all of the personal anectdotes, the quirky cult-like oddities and understand that the authors of the works included did not have the opportunity to comment on this collection, I believe that you will indeed find some good in this book.
