Not for me2 star

Maybe I need to completely finish the book. From what I’ve read so far this book isn’t for me. I’ve never been one to do things to please others or look for a reward from anyone but myself. I’m all about self growth.25

Great book5 star

A book I reread55


Short read, not much depth3 star

The principles are wonderful. But I feel like he added a LOT of filler. Honestly, some it sounds purposefully made it to fit the narrative, even though I doubt he was doing that. Additionally we read this as part of a book study. In the group we would start of positive, but inevitably with each chapter we would ultimately find enormous and glaring flaws in his “spiritual logic” That being said. I still read and recommend this book. But primarily to people struggling to identify and use spiritual principles in their daily life.35


OK3 star

I mean it is OK. Basis stuff: don’t judge yourself & others, don’t get offended when people say bad things... but I don’t get why this is so popular. It didn’t change my life or give me an inspiration. It is easy to tell people “hey everyone’s life experience is different, so don’t get offended by anything” ... that was the entire book35
