    this book is not what you think

    I have read many books on Buddhism and this is my first disappointment. His messages are redundant and sometimes he still doesn't seem to get to the point. Buddhism is not rocket science, but he struggles to explain the plain and simple. Other things seem like complete misrepresentations, such as when he says Buddhist believe that you could be reincarnated as a plant or a mineral. I would not recommend this book to a beginner, and the only way to understand what he's trying to say is if you have already read a bit on Buddhism, which makes reading this book obsolete.

    Outstanding

    Had to write something after reading the review here. He did not state buddhas believe in coming back as mineral. He said some Hindus do. I have reread this book many times,understanding the concept of we make our own hell more and more. The first read is like a seed. After experiencing life a little more,I come back and understand what the author is trying to say. Then go experience life more. This and his other book has changed the way I see the world,and how I interact with it. I wish he had 20 more books but then,if ever awaken,I wouldn't need them. I am finding a piece with myself and the world around me like I have never before. Not a religion ,a path to be awaken is what he tries to describe. It has changed my life. People around me has noticed and even had some say they wish they could be more like me. They can. They just need to start on the path to cold mountain.
