Worth reading, taken with a grain of salt.3 star

This book presents a unique perspective on the human condition, and how to deal with it. Overall, I appreciate the message of a way to live in love and freedom. The author, at times, tends to exceed the bounds of reality a bit too much for me. For instance, I do not think that believing you will get cancer will actually cause cancer. In fact, believing you might get cancer may prompt you to avoid things that really do cause cancer. Other than that, good story!35
