    Okay, but not great

    One of the basic practices of Buddhism is to remain mindful, and one way this is achieved is through reminders. This book is a collection of reminders which range in length from a sentence to a short page. All the selections are from books published by the editor's own press, and there is no original material here. I found a much more valuable, rare and inspirational collection of Buddhist reminders in 'Open Your Mind, Open Your Life: A Little Book of Eastern Wisdom' by Taro Gold.

    I disagree strongly; this book is lovely.

    This book is so beautifully made and simple and clean looking. Very inviting, which is a great way (the best way, really) to communicate wisdom. While this book is indeed made of excerpts, they're inspired choices, and they speak to an overall quality that is nothing to sneeze at.
