This book was intially described to me as a book for anyone who has ever said to him or herself: "I agree with a lot of Buddhists but I am not one myself. Or perhaps I might be?" In a modern voice with ancient wisdoms, the truths are explained in simple, hip terms for young adult seekers. Additionally, meditation topics and anchoring/grounding techniques are introduced. One can move at one's own pace through the material and take as much time and reflection as one would like. Additionally, I can see myself going back to it for reminders and/or refreshers whenever needed. All in all, this book is a great resource for seekers of ancient wisdom in an increasingly chaotic postmodern world.

Ttaditional Buddhim ideals in easy to understand language and written for today's society. I found this book extremely pleasing to read.

I can't thank Lodro enough for creating such an amazing book. This book has helped me out tremendously. Lodro had me chuckling and really using my brain during every chapter. Before I finished this book, I had already purchased the sequel, "Walk Like a Buddha." So far, I'm really enjoying that one as well.

If you are open minded this is a book to by teens. It makes it clear how important it is to be your self. To like your self and forgive your self.
